Following a look at the collection’s Air Max 90, Nike Sportswear unveils its full “Lucha Libre” collection inspired by the art of Mexican wrestling.

Inspired by its loud masks, boisterous costumes, and dramatic showmanship, the footwear in the collection comes dressed in exotic leathers and rich textiles with fun details throughout. The Air Max 90 comes in a bisected black and white color scheme, a nod to famous Lucha Libre rivalries pitting good against evil, or “Los Técnicos vs. Los Rudos.” Its construction features textured woven material on the toe box and a patent leather mudguard.

The Blazer Mid features a satiny woven upper, faux snakeskin paneling, and lacing inspired by the back lacing of a wrestling mask. The gold is a take on boots worn by luchadores in the golden era of the 1950s and ’60s. Rounding out the footwear is an Air Force 1 with a metallic silver leather and a removable synthetic mask on the left and right shoe that form the left and right eye slots. There is also apparel in the collection in the form of two hoodie styles for men and women and a tee.

The Nike “Lucha Libre” collection launches on SNKRS in Mexico on September 11th, followed by a Nike app drop in Mexico on September 14th and a global release on September 17th.
