The DQM x Nike Air Max 90 Bacon is one of several hotly anticipated launches arriving as part of this silhouette's 20th anniversary. Thought to be launching to coincide with Air Max Day 2020, even more exclusives are rumoured from OG's to all-new and contemporary styles. Keep it here for more updates and scroll down to find out more about this re-issue.
Nike collaborated with New York clothing boutique Dave's Quality Meat back in 2005. That legendary store is now closed but the legacy of their bacon-inspired Air Max 90 lives on. This trainer remains a commodity on the resell market and is amongst the many rare 90s to feature in the hall of fame.
With all that said, it's hardly surprising that sneakerheads were gassed to hear of a potential restock. Although details are currently still scarce, this does look to be launching as part of Nike's SS20 lineup. Just like the original, a colourway of pink, red and beige pulls inspiration from a juicy slab of pork belly. Whilst the theme might seem odd, it was actually a homage to the butcher shop theme of Dave Ortiz's popular NYC store.
This sizzling crep gets ever more appealing thanks to ultra premium layers of suede alongside soft leather overlays. Of course, it wouldn't be complete without that crispy outsole featuring in dark brown whilst the visible Air Unit sports that tonal shade of pink.
A confirmed release date is yet to be given for the Dave's Quality Meat x Air Max 90 Bacon. Keep checking back and don't miss our raffle guide, live several weeks before the release!
