AIK Launch Special Nike Air Max 90 To Celebrate 13th Anniversary

Celebrating their 130th anniversary, AIK have joined forces with technical sponsors Nike to release a special edition Air Max 90 that pays homage to the community of fans that is inherently tied to the Blue Line metro of the area.

The Blue Line metro runs from Kungsträdgården, close to where the club was founded, to Solna where all the training takes place. It then continues on to the northern and western suburbs of Stockholm, where many of the players and supporters live and breathe. It’s here that you can find AIK’s future. The club’s community, style and attitude is a direct result of the Blue Line’s many dimensions. And so, for the club’s 130th anniversary, AIK pay tribute to the Blue Line, with a highly limited special edition Nike Air Max 90.

Following the numerous drippy shirt releases that have bolstered AIK’s reputation as one of the most stylish club’s in the world, they now take things off-pitch into a purely lifestyle direction. The AIK x Nike Air Max 90 arrives in a predominantly black colourway, featuring hits of reflective gold that are a nod to the special-edition kit that AIK wore in 2019. In addition, the sneaker features details that pay homage to the club’s community.

The sneaker combines smooth black leather paneling with a black mesh base. The Swoosh is rendered in black suede, allowing a subtle contrast between the three predominant materials. The lateral sides of the mudguard feature “1891’ in reflective gold print — a nod to the year AIK was founded — while the medial sides feature “AIK” in the same gold lettering. The tongue swaps out the silhouette’s signature Nike Swoosh branding and replaces it with the club crest.
