To go along with the “Rice Ball” Air Max 90, “Japan” Air Max 95, and the “Energy Jelly” Air Max 97, Nike reveals another Air Max 90 honoring Japanese culture, this time inspired by fried chicken.
Dressed in a Speed Yellow, Shimmer, White, Siren Red, Black, and Pure Platinum color scheme. This Nike Air Max 90 features a Yellow and White striped upper nodding to the fried chicken wrapper paper, while peeled off reveals a fried chicken-inspired design underneath. Other details includes Metallic Silver eyelets, rear overlays, and Swooshes atop a White midsole with Nude Air cassettes and translucency outsole. Finishing off the theme are a set of tongs printed on the insoles.
