    Lol, that's still the nike decade. I think that's the only shoe that will never-ever get a retro because of it's tainted reputation

    Got high hopes for this up coming retro, hardly been buying anything lately. AML has always been on a par with AM1 for me, to quote AMD - Time to re-up the stash!! :nthat:

    yes, it's the original pair from 1989 on those pics, not the 2019 retro (I really wish the new retro shoe will be like this... a good Air Max Light anniversary release would be perfect! I also like this model a lot)

    (otherwise I find the 2014 Air Max Light nice)

    You mean you prefer the pre yellowing on the midsole to clean white? I like it, but not sure I want the retro to go there.. I prefer it when it happens naturally like on my 2007s

    These shoes can't go hype now.. After all this time, only size? and Mita collabs.. Stay underground - It pays

    it pays indeed but that means that we are not getting new cws on a regular base like the popular AM models, if this model not gaining better sales after next years 30th anniversary, nike will probaby pull the plug out of the AML and they will end up a silent death just like the BWs or they gonna slap the AML upper above the AM97 midsole in the hope that it will gain better sales, i think also next year they will gonna drop a few collabos for the AML and it is possible that Patta or Atmos or maybe even both will drop an AML collabo to revive this sick silhouette

    Is this speculation or something you've heard on the AM grapevine? :wink: Agreed tho, we don't want this model shelved, but silhouettes like this and the AM94 are true AM classics which are best left alone by the hypebeast crew. Imagine this thread if Patta did a collab, I'd be happy but also pissed about all the hype.. Then be accused of elitism if it got too much and started moaning :evil: Also if Patta / Parra get involved they better do a good job and not make clown shoes.

    I think the AML will be safe in the event we don’t get a garbage off white or neckbeard collab.

    Just give us OG colorways and I’ll be happy.

    ^^ off white AML.. No way - That trash is way to mainstream to pick out AML, patta or atmos would definitely be contenders since they'd know / appreciate the history etc.

    This x100

    its just speculation from my side, what i do know is that years ago the guys from Patta wanna design a cw for the AML but nike refused them because the shoe wasnt out yet and nike told them just design something for the AM1 thats how the AM1 AMS got created, i personally wanna see a Ben Drury, Stash and DJ CK112 collabo that would be sick imo :nthat:

    Granted this pair is pretty beat, but on feet they are nice. They have that vintage runner look, toebox is very sharp.

    The mudguard tip kept coming away from the 3M, kept gluing them over and over.. got pissed and flipped them.. the BW persians dropped for the first time in ages around that time so might have been 08? Copped those and some miami south beach 90s.. so definitely 2008 ha

    Edit - I held the persians way above the hold tights back then, they hadn't retro'd in so long.. Then Nike started smashing them out pretty much every other year :rofl:

    If they didn't have split colour midsole, would have been fire.. Still a decent collab tho

    yes i think they are, its been already more than a year ago that nike have released normal BWs, sales are probably poor from this model, thats why they now release BWs with 97 midsole to keep this model going, so next year will be very crucial for the AML
