Tinker Hatfield’s iconic Air Max 90 has received the ultimate accolade by having a version named after the coolest city in the UK. Released next month the ‘Manchester’ makes up one third of the BSMNT Air Max 90 City Pack with Glasgow and London also having a 90 named after them too. BSMNT being a reference to the group of young creatives named Basement who helped create the pack. First to drop will be the Glasgow (05.10.19) featuring a plush leather safety orange tongue and retro-reflective Swoosh and heel tab that are inspired by the iconic traffic cone placed upon the head of the Duke Of Wellington statue in the city centre.
Second up is the Manchester drop (12.10.19) that includes a quarter panel running around the shoe made up of black 3M, which increases visibility while maintaining the shoe’s stealthy aesthetic There’s also a jewel Swoosh which is the first of its kind on an Air Max 90 which should go down particularly well with ‘we did it first’ crowd.
Lastly in the London (19.10.19) that includes no less than four detachable swoosh options and five tones of grey in an array of premium materials to reflect the human and architectural diversity of our glorious capital.
Each shoe will be sold exclusively at select retailers in thei appropriate city as well as on the SNEAKRS app. Whilst a donation from the project will go to Youth Futures organisation, which currently provides mentorship programming to young Londoners.
