Nike AM90 and AM1 Vintage pack

post #1 of 1104
Thread Starter 
Saw it on sneakernews.  Looks like Spring 2013.  I like the look and shape of the 90, but I'm curious if that yellowed midsole can be scrubbed down to white.

The Nike Air Max 90 ‘Infrared’ is one of those styles that we can thankfully count on to come back around every couple of years. The Nike Air Max 1 in the original sport red makeup is a less frequent retro, but has nonetheless made the rounds plenty of times to where you should have a pair in your collection by now. If you’re missing either though Spring 2013 will offering up a few, albeit with the faux VNTG styling applied that has them looking quite different from any recent retro. The sneakers don’t go too overboard on that treatment though, registering as some of the best we’ve seen with the weathered look. Click through with us for a better view of both and let us know if you’re looking forward to the Nike Air Max 1 and Air Max 90 OG colorways coming back next year. Photo: Sole Haven

Down for both, my 2009 AM1 is starting to get beat and I can get unDS my other pairs of the 2010 AM90. If they can get the mesh looking like the original stuff on the AM1 I'll be really happy, the mudguard looks higher than it did on the 2009 pair.

happy to hear theyre coming back out. honestly, the worn out sole looks are nice. makes me feel like theyre broken in already..that and i can avoid having to keep the uppers crispy clean lol.

Is there a reversal now in the at least 5 year fight against the VNTG soles? I remember that just about every other shoe that's gotten the treatment has been met with resistance from people buying. I don't mind it since it can usually come right off with a little bit of cleaning.

when will Nike put this "vintage" garbage to rest? Well, maybe the piss yellow will crack off like the rest of the painted midsole...I'll pass
post #16 of 1104
I'll never understand the vintage treatment. That said, if the yellowing can be scrubbed off like it has on previous shoes given the vintage treatment, count me in for 2 pairs of Infras. Can never have enough and that shape does look good.

it looks like those might be coming out with the vintage treatment too. I'm shocked they're not dropping this year for the 25th Anniversary, but oh well.

I'm not too scared of the catalog pictures of the Vintage AM1, it looks like on the sample they have floating they already got the soles to be the proper colors and it doesn't look like they have that weird nylon tongue with the stuffing spilling out on the sample.

The upper looks a little darker on the 90s. I'll try for 2 pairs. Still want the ostrich pair.

AM1 midsoles are easy to paint, so the weathered sole doesnt matter. I just wish the side material didnt slant. I mean, how hard is it for them to make it straight and even? Come on Nike, at least get that right.
post #22 of 1104
Not a big fan of the pre-yellowed midsoles...will decide when I see in person...
Felt sorry for my maid, I gave that girl a raise. She said you got too many Js, I'd be cleaning for days.

post #25 of 1104
Most of us have enough vintage shoes that we don't need Nike to pre-yellow its releases for us... If I want to wear a shoe that looks halfway beat I'll dip into my stash. This release is a buzzkill, for me anyhow
post #26 of 1104
^ lol thats what im sayin, why would i pay over a $100 for a shoe that looks worn already, nvr was a fan of the vintage treatment i like my new shoes to look brand new

The vintage treatment actually looks somewhat acceptable.. Although I am in favor of aging my own shoes, through years of wear.. Maybe they don't believe their own products can last years anymore and if you want that vintage yellowed look, you better buy them NEW that way
