Who would have thought there would be a day when fried chicken and sneaker culture would collide? Well, judging by a recent Nike Air Max release, the impossible has happened and Racks Hogan provides all the context in the latest episode of Complex and In The Know’s. The reversal.
“We got an Asian-only version. We got the Nike Air Max 90 ‘Fried Chicken’,” he says during the episode. “Okay Fried Chickens are cool sneakers. He moved the lines forward in all sorts of crazy ways and so on. But, I’ll be honest with you. I think at a retail price of $160 they can resell, but they may not resell very expensive.
All in all, if you were to take Racks’ word for it, this style might not be worth it.
“This is probably the first time I’ve said no to fried chicken,” he added. “But you know, I’m going to have to say no to fried chickens.”

Adidas BOOST devotees might notice some similarities between the soles of this new release and the classic Adidas sneaker, with the translucent slip that sits just above the midsole. However, this much higher version deviates from the iconic shoe with a completely new and much more technical aesthetic.
