Nike is no stranger to creating space-themed sneakers, most recently in January, a NASA-inspired PG3 was released. Now, the sportswear titan is readying a "Mars Landing" Air Max 90.

Following its 2014 "Moon Landing" counterpart, the new Air Max 90 offering uses the entire sneaker to highlight the surface texture and colors of the Red Planet. Utilizing archived images of Mars from the rover, the Nike team was able to get the uppers on the sneaker to look like the craters and the silver accents on the heel tab and tongue tab finish off the space vibes.

You can purchase the Nike Air Max 90 "Mars Landing" on March 16 for $160 via SNKRS app and at select retailers. A little kids version will also be available for $70 and a toddler version for $52.

Release Date: 3/16/19 (Saturday)
