The New, Cyrillic-Dressed Air Max 90 “Moscow” Is Here

The Air Max 90 was Nike’s first sneaker to get recognition in Russia’s capital, Moscow. The model has been part of the city’s subcultures of football fans, artists, and rappers since the turn of the 21st century. To honor that bond, Nike released the “Moscow” version of the Air Max 90, and the shoe has some real Moscow vibes.
It features smoke grey tones complemented with silver, infrared, and laser blue elements on the heel, inner side, and backside of the tongue. The shoe is made of leather and suede.
The Air Max 90 “Moscow” Has Captured the City’s Spirit
The “Nike Air” branding is added to the heel and on the tongue. The grey hues evoke the city’s architecture while the colorful elements express Moscow’s neon lights, underground signs, and flashing car lights. The mudguards are embossed with the Russian words for “Speed” and “City”.
The Air Max 90 “Moscow” was released on November 14 at selected retailers in Moscow and on the SNKRS. The shoe is priced at $194.
