Nike Air Max 90 "Be True" (2019)
Colour: WHITE/MULTI COLOR-BLACK-WOLF GREY
Size Guide: Go true to size
Nike’s yearly Be True pack has honoured diversity, equal rights, and unapologetically being yourself every year since 2012, and one of the crown jewels of this year’s five-silhouette Pride flag-inspired collection is unquestionably the Air Max 90. Using a white, grey, and black base with a octadic serving of colored accents, these 90s provide bold pops of flair everywhere you look. Their main design detail arrives via the midfoot Swoosh, which features a multi-layered embroidered design, serving up one check for each of the original Pride flag’s eight colors. More vibrant accents are also dispersed around the upper: purple, orange, pink, and blue all appear on the eyestays, red graces the mudguard badge, blue is swathed across the heel overlay, a hit of yellow is equipped on the midfoot, and a light ocean blue makes an appearance on the outsole. The insoles are also split, with the left shoe featuring a pink base adorned with the BE TRUE motif and signature of artist/activist Gilbert Baker’s - the man who created the Pride flag, while the right opts for colorful stacked rectangles with various words of affirmation.
