Sneaker Spotlight: HUF x Nike Air Max 90 Deluxe “Clerks”

huf_nike_air_max_deluxe_5The Sneakerpedia Spotlight hasn’t had to cast to far for its next subject. Sticking with the Clerks Pack we find the Air Max 90 Deluxe by HUF. Released in 2006 as part of the San Francisco trio of sneakers for the afore-mentioned Clerks Pack from Nike. Designed by HUF store manager Naotke Nogata inspiration is said to come from the high-end luxury fashion houses like Louis Vuitton; which you can certainly see in its Baroque Brown and Metallic Gold appearance.

Making up the rest of the SF Clerks pack was the Nort SF Dunk High and True Humara (required on the wiki). The HUF Air max 90 was the first time we saw the “Deluxe” version of the iconic runner from Nike. Clad with premium panels of leather like Ostrich, Crocodile and Python all tied together with a traditional mesh. Arguably the most stand out feature on this shoe was the translucent gold air bubble surround, the first time we had seen this treatment on the Air Max 90. Did this shoe grab your attention when you first saw it, how do you think it stands up against the rest of the Clerks pack?
