Nike Air Max 90 Inspired by Onigiri

Nike Sportswear is set to release a new Air Max 90 dubbed, “Rice Ball” that’s inspired by Onigiri, also known as o-musubi, nigirimeshi, or rice ball, a Japanese food made from white rice formed into triangular or cylindrical shapes and often wrapped in nori.

This edition of the Nike Air Max 90 features a seaweed-like textured upper highlighted with Aqua Blue contrasting accents and Red covering the “AIR MAX” and “Nike Air” emblem at the side and heel, respectively. Its mudguards give off a plastic wrapper vibe, while having “Pull” nodding to the product’s packaging on the tongues and laces. An insole covered in rice graphics atop a White midsole and Blue translucent outsole completes the design.

Check out the official photos below, and look for the Nike Air Max 90 “Rice Ball” to release in Asia on March 19th at select retailers and Nike.com. A stateside release has yet to be announced. The retail price tag is set at $140 USD.
