Nike Air Max 90 “Bacon” Looking Crispy in 2021
- by Nick Demaria
- Release date: March 26, 2021
Nike Air Max is celebrating its 30th anniversary on March 26th. One of the anticipated releases for 2021 Air Max day is the Air Max 90 “Bacon” re-release. This pair was originally released in 2004 in collaboration with Dave’s Quality Meat, a New York City sneaker boutique. The current resale price on the original release Air Max 90 “Bacon” is around $900, so picking up a new pair at retail would be a definite win.
The colorway on these kicks is Sail/Sheen/Straw/Medium Brown/Red, and as the name implies, they are meant to resemble a slice of bacon. The idea for this colorway came to be when the once owner of Dave’s Quality Meat, Dave Ortiz, was starving and decided to order a bacon, egg, and cheese sandwich. He decided that “everybody loves bacon,” and history was made.
These kicks will be available via Nike SNKRS on Friday, March 26th, for $140.
