Inspired by the bright lights and bustling city-streets of Rio, as well as the fabled Brasilian hummingbird, the latest City Pack channels South American nightlife and nature in one cohesive collection. Each of the four silhouettes, including the Nike Shox Turbo XIV, the Air Max Motion, the Air Max 90 Breathe, and the Roshe Run Slip-on, offer vibrant renditions of time-tested classics and new-age icons alike.

for the first time, the Air Max 90 Breathe receives the City Pack treatment, with a proper Brasilian colorway with hints of summertime inspiration.


The BMF Kicks & Sportswear Take >>

From a tech standpoint, the Nike Air Max 90 Breathe City ‘Rio’ is a wonder — Phylite and Free in the forefoot of the sole, Max Air in the heel, and Hyperfuse and mesh everywhere in the upper makes for an insanely comfortable shoe; however, the color scheme is muted a bit by the subtle grey, making this particular version of the Air Max 90 a little less attractive than other versions.
