Nike Air Max III (Nike Air Max 90)

Released: 1990

Complex says: Back in the 90s it was known as the Air Max III. After 2000 when the III was retroed, it became more commonly known as the Air Max 90.  Building on the success from the first two Air Maxes, the Visible Air unit was included along with breathable mesh which most prefer over today’s sometimes all-leather upper. For the first time a multi-lace system was incorporated to allow for extra comfort and a more secure fit for running. The design gets a sleek aggressive feel to it, making you look fast.
