Nike is on a run of revitalizing some of their classic models. The latest silhouette to surface online in new retro fashion is 1999’s Air Max Deluxe, an incredibly bulky runner finally set to return later this Summer.

To be honest, the Nike Air Max Deluxe was never expected to make a comeback. After the silhouette returned to the spotlight with last year’s first Skepta x Nike Air Max, several avid fans have been badgering Nike employees for any news of a possible return. While none was directly confirmed, one enterprising fan on Twitter pointed out that the original mold for the Deluxe’s wild upper is likely long gone, and costly to replace. However, it appears Nike will go to any lengths to please Air Max fanatics. The Nike Air Max Deluxe is set to return next month in a new “Photo Blue” look, which covers the upper in a marbled pattern of blue, white, and brown. The colorway was first released back in July around the world, though the U.S. was left out for unknown reasons. Now, Nike has finally announced a stateside release date for the long-awaited Air Max Deluxe. After the grand return this Summer, there are six more new colorways of the retro Air Max scheduled to release throughout the year.


The Nike Air Max Deluxe is scheduled to return to the United States on August 10th, 2018. The Photo Blue colorway is expected first, carrying a retail price of $180. Check out the official images below for a better look at the 90’s classic, and stay tuned to JustFreshKicks for more Nike Air news.
