Over the past 15 years it seems as though some colorway’s of various Air Max shoes are all but ignored by Nike. Some of them retro’d once some of them never, take a look at this list (in no particular order) of 10 Air Max shoes that Nike should re-release.


Nike Air Max 90 White/Spruce/Lime

The Air Max 90 in Spruce/Lime is an original 1990 colorway that retro’d ONCE in 2008 (the 2003 lime release didn’t feature the spruce mud guard)and only at JD Sports in the United Kingdom. After several releases of the Infrared’s and a few Laser blues its time for a world wide release of this understated colorway.

Nike Air Max 95 Slate

One of the most iconic colorway’s of the Air Max 95, the ‘Slates’ as their referred to in the shoe community, hasn’t received a proper retro since 2005. After the dulled down 2010 abomination of this shoe its only right to bring these back in their OG glory as Nike has done for the recent OG retro of the Neon colorway.

Nike Air Max Plus I Cool Grey/Coast-Neutral Grey

Released as a Champs/Footlocker/Eastbay exclusive back in Y2K, this colorway is a gem that has never seen a re-release. With the return of the Pimento’s and Hyperblue’s these are a logical third installment for a shoe that’s just plain dopeness.

Since we haven’t seen a retro of this shoe ever, any colorway will do, but if we had our say it would be these.

The Air Max 93 is a beautiful shoe that hasn’t seen much love after the HOA pack in 2005. Since the flame red’s haven’t seen any burn in the retro world, we’ll take a pair to go.

Nike Air Max 90 ‘Python’

With the release of the Nike Python this month why not retro the Python Air Max 90 for 2014? Featuring faux black snake skin with white and grey accents, these things will match up with pretty much anything. As the 2003 release becomes increasingly difficult to track down a retro would be welcomed with open arms.

Nike Air Max 2009 + Neutral Grey/Electric Green/Black

These were a Finishline exclusive colorway that sold out quietly and are super tough to come by today. Arguably one of the nicest colorway’s of one of the greatest Air Max shoes of all time. Yea, its time for a retro.

Variety is the spice of life and with so much focus on the usual suspects (Am 1, 95, 97, 09 etc.) Why not this classic? We’ll take them with the large air units please.

Nike Air Tuned Max Dark Charcoal/Celery-Saturn Red

Released back in 1999 this was the first shoe to feature full length Tuned Air. The fact that they looked like a shogun warrior for your feet ready to slice up your local track was a bonus.


Nike Air Max 360 2006 Engine/White-Anthra-FlintGrey

The AM 360 2006 was revolutionary, unfortunately it was rushed. The 360 was prone to blow outs and is why when Nike begun to retro the shoe, they came equipped with an updated midsole. None of the OG colorway’s have re-released as of yet but we’re pushing for these. Just one request, if they do indeed retro them, promise us and yourself no B.S. nicknames like the Florida Oranges or some $%^&.
