Nike is keeping the momentum of Air Max going; following the Air Max 90 “Valentine’s Day” debut, the prolific brand is celebrating style-hub cities Chicago, New York, and Los Angeles with the Air Max “City Special” pack, featuring an Air Max 90, 95, and 97.

The first of the trio is the Air Max 90 “Chicago,” which pays homage to the Bulls’ hometown. Constructed in a mix of smooth leather and sleek textures, the special edition shoe features exclusive ‘CHI’ tags and insoles. The pair sticks to a red color scheme throughout, perfectly representing the city’s basketball team, though orange accents may also pay homage to the signage of the iconic Chicago Theatre.

The Air Max 95 “NYC” takes inspiration from the classic New York City yellow taxi. Constructed in a mix of mesh and leather, the iconic yellow shade fills the entire upper. Special edition “NYC” tags can be found on the lateral heel as well as on the branded insole. Black detailing throughout and a black rubber outsole complete the entire look, resembling taxi tires.

Last but not least, we have the Air Max 97 “Los Angeles,” which takes inspiration from LA’s sunny weather with an eye-catching orange shade all over. The shoe features black detailing throughout as well as the classic AM97 3M reflective detail. Resembling the other two pairs in the pack, special edition “LA” tags can be found on the lateral as well as the branded insole. A solid orange rubber outsole completes the shoe.

The Air Max “City Special” pack can be expected in the coming weeks via and select retailers. For now, it appears that these styles will release exclusively in Grade School sizing. Stay tuned to Modern Notoriety for more updates.
