The Air Max 90 Bacon is still one of the most highly sought-after Nike Air Max 90s of all time. So much so, that Nike decided to bring back the 2006 design to celebrate Air Max Day. It is not often that Nike retros collaborations, with most staying locked in their original release date and never resurfacing. But with its continuously growing fan base and pleas from Air Max fans to revive the 16-year-old colorway, Nike brought back the sneaker in 2021 in its original form.

The Nike Air Max 90 Bacon is an exact 1-of-1 return of the runner’s design from Dave’s Quality Meat’s creator, David Ortiz. Mimicking the different shades of colors that appear from cooked bacon, the sneaker is composed of various shades of brown, red, pink, and off-white. With a compilation of suede, tumbled leather, and mesh, this Air Max 90 brings a luxe feel to the traditional 1990 model.
