When the DQM x Nike Air Max 90 “Bacon” retro was confirmed to return in 2021, the sneaker community got excited. The 2004 collaboration with Dave’s Quality Meats has remained a serious grail for many collectors. Although it’s become harder and harder to find a pair nowadays, the news of a retro has been welcomed for many. Well, we now have a date to look forward to. In fact, the DQM x Nike Air Max 90 “Bacon” will be returning on Air Max Day.
The sneaker, which was originally released in 2004, is inspired by Dave Ortiz’ years in the New York meatpacking district. In fact, the streetwear boutique has more of a butcher’s shop aesthetic rather than that of a sneaker store. Called the “Bacon” for obvious reasons, the DQM x Nike Air Max 90 features various shades of red, pink, brown and white to look like a bacon strip. Premium leather and suede used throughout gives this sneaker a luxurious finish, a feature that made it such a hit back in ’04.
The story combined with the materials makes this an instant cop for us. If you’re looking to get your hands on the Nike Air Max 90 “Bacon” then there’s not long to wait. Dropping on Air Max Day (March 26th) for just €140, you can expect these to sell out quick. Check out the official images below and let us know if you’ll get these Air Max 90s.
