France owns another slot here with this makeup of the Air Max 90 that takes a concept and executes it perfectly to create one of the best shorts shoes ever. There's something quintessentially French about this colorway and the stitched task on the ribbed 'Air Max' panel finishes it perfectly. This one's rare too and whenever the AM90 flares up (even though the AM1 is flavor of the month right now) these are top of many wish lists. If a jeans-themed shoe seems done now, just bear in mind that when these dropped, they weren't. For that reason, these are one of the greatest of all time.
