One of the most well-known sneaker styles is the Nike Air Max 90, which made its debut as the third design idea in the Air Max series. As the name suggests, Tinker Hatfield, a well-known sneaker designer for the Swoosh brand, designed the silhouette, which made its debut in 1990.

This design of the sneaker served as an early prototype of the 'dad shoe.' 33 years after its debut, the sneaker's design has undergone a number of changes. Most recently, the silhouette arrived in pistachio green makeup.

On the company's website, the Air Max 90 model is outlined as follows:

“The 90s were a turning point in culture — art, music, fashion and sneakers. The Air Max was at the forefront of the movement. With even more exposed Air cushioning and a bold new color, its revolutionized design helped the first 90 take on a life of its own. No longer just a running shoe, it solidified Air Max as a streetwear cornerstone.”

The Nike Air Max 90 "Australia" Pistachio Green shoes are set atop a supple white leather base, with light grey nubuck overlays on the toe box, mudguard, and heel. The pistachio green color is applied to the translucent quarters, mid-foot Swooshes, tongue and heel tabs, and the Max Air bubble underfoot.

Additionally, the green hue is contrasted by gold metallic dubraes on the laces, sun insignias on the heel, and "AU" logos on the upper tongue and insoles. The shoes are completed by a white midsole and a staple gum tread that adds a touch of vintage flair.

The new "Australia" Pistachio Green shoes are part of Nike's Tail Wind lineup, which has been ingrained within the country's youth culture for over two decades. The Tail Wind series features various models of Nike's Air Max family, such as the Air Max Plus, Air Max 97, and Air Max 270.

The pistachio green colorway is inspired by Australia's synonymous green, yellow, and gold palette that is notoriously worn throughout the Olympics. The shoes are also a tribute to Australia's rich natural landscape and diverse wildlife.

The Nike Air Max 90 "Australia" Pistachio Green shoes are a limited edition release that celebrates Australia's love for sneakers and sports. They are a must-have for any Air Max fan or collector who appreciates unique and exclusive colorways.
