To his legions of followers, John Mayer is an accomplished singer/songwriter and once-in-a-generation guitar virtuoso. He's also become something of a fashion icon, whose collection of visvim, vintage watches and sneakers have quickly become the stuff of legend. It's in the guise of OG sneakerhead that Mayer embarked on a new project: a very unofficial Nike collaboration, in which Mayer bypassed the higher-ups at Beaverton and designed his own Air Max 90 on NIKEiD, then proceeded to purchase as many pairs as he could. "I'm just waiting for it to get discontinued on their site," he told GQ. "And I'm gonna offer it as my own shoe through my Shopify page. [laughs] Just for fun!" The resulting Nike Air Max 90 "Spirit Level," featuring neutral grey and black tones atop a speckled midsole, is coming sooner than later. According to Mayer's Instagram, the kicks will launch through his site on July 29.

Release Date: 7/29/17 (Saturday)
