Nike Air Max 90| History

Nike Air Max 90 History Dribbble
From Dribbble

In 1987, Tinker Hatfield was in charge of designing the Air Max 1 which was a huge hit. Its revolutionary Air Unit changed sneaker manufacturing forever, making the Air Max an instant classic.

With that success came further pressure to continuously build upon the Air Max 1. As a result, Hatfield came up with similar great designs that are still considered best sellers.

In 1990, the Air Max 90 was born as the real spiritual successor to the Air Max 1. Then called the Nike Air Max III, this sneaker followed the Air Jordan line with constant evolution in design and functionality.

Some Air Max 90s even featured exotic materials such as the Safari colorway. They were an instant hit, with many still highly sought after on reseller markets.

To estimate resale for the Nike Air Max 90 Safari, let’s head over to StockX.

Peak Resell: $213

Release Date: 10/25/2020

Colorway: Black/Infrared-Anthracite

The Nike Air Max 90 Infrared Safari dropped back in October in Japan, Tokyo at Atmos stores. It features a jet black upper with “Safari” prints all over. Infrared hits can also be seen while a jet black sole with exposed Air Unit completes the design.

On StockX, the average selling price is $190 which is an average gross profit of around $50. I believe the Nike Air Max 90 Safari will have similar resale to this and to the Nike Air Max 90 Safari 2009 version.

Inspired by the color pallets of the original Air Safari, the Nike Air Max 90 Safari sports black, grey, and orange color tones. The most notable difference being the dominating black used on the 2020 version while being a more even split on the OG Air Safari.

The sneaker further features perforated leather on the toe box, mesh collars, and suede mudguards. A white leather ‘Swoosh’ and black/orange sole completes the design.

Resale Value

Since this is a popular colorway coupled with the iconic Air Max 90 Silhouette, you’ve got a guaranteed fast sell out.

By using my estimated resell value of $200, expect gross profits of around $60.

As a business student, Mohammad was thoroughly impressed with where the secondary market was heading for sneakers. He quickly realized that what used to be considered as a side hustle, was now the main income stream for many. He has studied the game ever since.
