The Air Max 90 ‘Viotech’ Pack has caused quite a stir in the world of sneakers, as the punchy color palette that originally debuted on the Nike Dunk Low in 2002 in has been enjoying a resurgence in popularity as of late thanks to frequent sightings on the feet of one Virgil Abloh.
Presenting an upper that features much more suede than you’d usually see on Nike’s Air Max 90, a shoe that usually opts for a combination of mesh, synthetics, and leather, this Tinker Hatfield-designed pair of Nike shoes is unquestionably just as striking in construction as it is in colourway.
The ‘Viotech’ name is provided by the rich purple on the toebox, while further coloured accents are provided by classic green and blue suede overlays plus a base made up of peach fabric. A black heel badge with yellow logos and black trim tone down the look just enough, while a grey tongue with a black leather patch plus a plentiful helping of yellow accents scattered throughout both the upper and midsole round the look off. The pack features two pairs with different colour blocking while maintaining the ‘Viotech’ theme.
