For three decades Nike Air Max 90s have brought joy to sneaker enthusiasts, who have massively adopted a string of models as essential fashion accessories, and, in some cases, must-have collectibles. Little wonder then that this brand of iconic sneakers, which has conquered the hearts of millions around the world, is one of the best known on the planet. To celebrate 30 years of the Air Max 90, which first launched in 1990, StockX has published rankings of the top-10 most expensive and the top-10 most popular versions, which are based on searches and the latest pricing data from the resale website.
As to the winner, the model that is the most popular is none other than the Air Max 90 “Mars Landing,” which stands out with an orange and black design that recalls the color scheme of depictions of the red planet. Hot on the heels of this leader are three more recent models, all of which emerged from collaborations with fashion label Off-White: the Air Max 90 Off-White Black, the Air Max 90 Off-White Desert Ore, and the Air Max 90 Off-White. Two ultra-colorful versions, the Air Max 90 Be True 2019 and the Air Max 90 Viotech OG, are respectively positioned in fifth and sixth place in the ranking.
