This year, the Air Max 90 is celebrating its 30th anniversary and Nike has created three new versions of the sneaker to celebrate the occasion.

First up is the all-new Air Max 90 FlyEase. Utilizing FlyEase technology, this version of the AM90 offers the classic comfort and performance of the classic sneaker with added ease getting in and out. This is achieved through the flexible heel that collapses when you step into the sneaker and snaps back into place once your foot is in.

Tinker Hatfield said, "It’s not often you get a second shot at taking another swing at trying to do something even better. We wanted to respect both sides of this equation, which is to do something fresh and new and important with retro design — an older design — and not change it too much."

Next up is the Air Max Verona. The heel of the Air Max 90 is exaggerated and the combination of the Air Max Thea and Air Max Dia help create this new women's silhouette. An Air Max 200 unit gives more visible air to the new design.

Finally, the Air Max 2090 is introduced as the future of the Air. Nike aims to keep core components of the AM90 like the mudguard, cassette and heel logo while incorporating new details and innovation. Color blocking and opacity indicate how supportive the materials are while a larger Air unit is used and a cropped Swoosh ushers in a new era.

Fans can purchase the Air Max 90 FlyEase in adult and kids sizing on March 9. The Air Max Verona will initially release on February 15 with more colors arriving on March 5 and the Air Max 2090 will arrive sometime this spring. For now, check out the Air Max 1 "NYC Chinatown" releasing this weekend.
