Nike x Roundel By London 'Underground Air Max Collection' revealed

Nike Sportswear revealed their latest collection Air Max classics on Monday as part of the Nike x Roundel by London Underground Air Max collection. Featuring the Nike Air Max 90 and Nike Air Max 1, the pattern found on the shoes is an homage to the London tube, the world's first underground railway, and the seat upholstery that is used on the railway cards. Nike has also taken the tribute one step further as the shoes also use materials that are unique to the Nike Air Max series, including woven polyester to really capture the texture and feel of those old seats.

The Nike Air Max 90 Jacquard features an engineered one-piece upper that takes inspiration from the old school Jacquard material. The no-sew technique gives the sneaker a new look while still retaining the elements that make the Air Max 90 such a timeless sneaker. The Nike Air Max 1 Jacquard is also made with the same materials, but opts instead for the usual cut-and-sew method so the while the pattern on the shoe stands out, it doesn't deviate much from classic Air Max 1 construction. The swoosh is also given a high density finish so that it stands out more from the unique pattern.

Both the Nike Air Max 90 Jacquard and Nike Air Max 1 Jacquard will drop on December 14 at select Nike retailers, although specific locations and prices have yet to be revealed.
