Basement x Nike Air Max 90 ‘Glasgow’

Following on from their extremely successful 2017 Nike collaboration with the mixed material Dunk, The Basement and Nike are working together again paying homage to the Glasgow community.

This Nike Air Max 90 model comes in a ‘Deep grey’ watertight upper and in certain lighting gives a 2-tone effect along the outer side trim of the shoe which has an almost ripstop nylon look to it. The collaboration also features an orange tongue taking inspiration from traffic cones. For those who aren’t aware of the reference of the ‘Safety orange’ tongue, it pays homage to a prank that’s pulled on the Duke of Wellington statue in Glasgow city Centre which for many years has had many locals put a safety cone on its head.
