When it comes to collaborations and themes, Nike is undeniably on top of the game and their upcoming Nike Air Max 90 Rice Ball is just the perfect example for this. Initially released all the way back in 1990, the AM90 launched in numerous colorways, themes, and even acted as a blank canvas for some of the most iconic collaborations that we know and love. As for this latest variant, the legendary silhouette unveils a theme that nods to Japan's famed riceball known as "Onigiri". If this sounds tasty to you, use our Nike Air Max 90 Rice Ball raffles list for your best chance to cop!
Much like a sandwich, Onigiri or Japanese riceballs are triangle-shaped rice burgers wrapped in seaweed with usually savoury fillings such as tuna, sweet pork, and all sorts. These can be homemade or a portable-ready snack from convenient stores.
This latest variant of the Air Max 90 comes dressed in seaweed-like overlays across the upper, complete with a mudguard that gives off a plastic wrapper look, red and light blue accents throughout and pull tabs on both tongues to resemble traditional Onigiri packaging. If that's not enough, the insoles display rice graphics, and we have no doubts that you'll be mouthwatering to get your hands on these.
The Nike Air Max 90 Onigiri Rice Ball is set to launch later on this year via Nike and other retailers, so stay locked in right here for all the details on where to cop, as we’ll update this page with select retailers as they’re confirmed!
