Tackle the Elements With the Nike Air Max 90 Gore-Tex “Infrared”

If you ask any sneaker lover what the most iconic trainer ever made was, there’s a huge chance that they’d bring up the legendary Nike Air Max 90 “Infrared.” Originally released back in 1990, the grail-worthy shoe has received many re-releases since. But, for the first time ever, it’s getting rebuilt for wetter weather with the upcoming Nike Air Max 90 Gore-Tex “Infrared.” The perfect balance between style and substance and form and function, here’s everything that you need to know.

From a distance, this AM90 is exactly what you’d expect. Featuring the same colourblocking as the OG pair from all those years ago, it works on top of a crisp white base and is bolster by light grey leather panelling throughout. Slick black overlays embrace the mudguards, while “Infrared” accents make the Nike sneaker pop even more. It’s a formula that has worked for over three decades, and one that we’ll never get tired of.

However, what makes this particular release so special is the fact that it’s lined with Gore-Tex. An industry leader in water-resistant tech, the material lines the entire shoe so you can tackle the elements in style. Just in case you needed a reminded that these are, indeed, the special Gore-Tex edition, the logo has been embellished on the tongue as well as the rubber badge on the laterals. It’s very subtle, but it works.

With the Nike Air Max 90 Gore-Tex “Infrared” FD5810-101, the brand proves its dedication to the past and the future, merging its rich heritage with cutting-edge innovations. Expected to launch before the end of 2023, be sure to stay tuned to Captain Creps for the most recent updates.
