Latest Pickup: Nike Air Max 90 FlyEase

If there is one sneaker that comes up a lot this year, it is definitely the Nike Air Max 90. This is because Nike debuted the silhouette exactly 30 years ago and the shape immediately conquered the sneaker world. Until today, the shoe still features one thing: the comfortable Air Max cushioning softens every step and increases the wearing comfort up to the "Max".

But Nike wouldn't be one of the biggest sporting goods manufacturers, if the brand were to rest on this success. That is why the Beaverton-based brand is also working on other important aspects and features that make a sneaker a full-fledged shoe. The classic from 1990 scores high today with improved materials, new lines, and also with important features.


Perhaps most of you are already wondering what "FlyEase" really means and why this AM90 has such a heavy spoiler. We can explain it to you in detail and also add other essential details that make up this shoe.

Nike already introduced FlyEase a few months ago. In late 2019, the Air Jordan 1 FlyEase was introduced, which is part of the Fearless Ones collection. For a sneaker to be dubbed "FlyEase", it has to fulfill a few aspects.

  • The sneakers must be easy to open and close. 
  • Ease of entry and exit must be ensured. 
  • The sneakers can be adjusted to different foot shapes and sizes.
Only if a sneaker meets two out of those three points it can call itself "FlyEase". Originally, Nike wanted to meet the needs of people with disabilities and bring out a shoe that can be used by physically challenged people without having to rely on the help of others. But in the meantime, FlyEase has become a fashionable trend, as the AM90 FlyEase obviously proves.

We admit that at the beginning, we were very skeptical about the colour scheme. The strong blue and the striking pink colour tone is simply not something to be overlooked. But, on-feet, the shoe looks completely different. The blue/pink colour matches perfectly with the coming summer days and underlines the whole modern and trendy look. The white details underline the fresh design and round off the overall package.

Technical Details

The Air Max cushioning should not really be discussed further. We know that cushioning is one of the top technologies and should not be missing on the shoe shelf of any sneakerhead. This sneaker focuses on the FlyEase properties, which are immediately apparent. The curved spoiler at the heel was carefully selected. You can easily get into the shoes and don't even have to untie the laces. Do you want to take your shoes off quickly? No problem. Just step on the spoiler and take them off. It's as simply as that. You won't have to lace them up again and again.

Conclusion on the Nike Air Max 90 FlyEase

The colours may be intense and may not suit everyone. But we quickly got used to the colour scheme and couldn't even imagine better shades for the first colourway. Nevertheless, we are looking forward to the next possible iterations and we will definitely keep an eye on it. You can also reach for your actual size. The sneakers fit TTS.
