Nike Sportswear have most certainly had their tail up in exploring the elements of late. In fields of science, biology and matter, the term elements here is aptly referring to the periodic table of elements. Pardoning the year 8 science lesson, It's Nike who are taking this elemental exploration into the colour palettes and textures of their material applications. Not content with the typical suede and mesh combinations, Nike Sportswear transcend the ruff and tough with sleek textured laminate patent leathers. What started with 'liquid metal' tags has morphed into metallic leathers, with colour tipped into the vat of molten possibilities.

To carry this stratospheric surface, the Air Max 90 has been elected. An apt decision considering it's heading into its 25th year celebrations in a few weeks time. It's providence isn't up for debate these days, its a stone-cold classic - a champion of the Swoosh's Air Max story. With its sport angles and components in a timeless shape, it holds and carries the metallic finish in a fashion forward light.
