In honor of its 130th anniversary, Swedish football club Allmänna Idrottsklubben (best known as AIK) has a Nike Air Max 90 in the works.
Clad in “Black/Metallic Gold/White,” the forthcoming pair is replete with details unmistakably nodding to the storied sports team. Medial heels are stamped with the club’s acronym, while typical Nike Air Max branding on the tongue is replaced by the crown and sun graphics found on its official crest. Detailing on the lateral heel denotes the AIK Fotboll’s founding year (1891); a “CXXX” (“130” in Roman numerals) is split between right and left shoes, and visible via the semi-translucent waffle-patterned outsole. Lastly, navy takes over the collar and complements the light grey sock-liner, a design choice informed by the Allsvenskan-competing team’s kits.
