Chicago is hardly a city in need of more sneaker tributes, but that hasn't stopped Nike Sportswear from crafting a new pair for the Midwest metropolis.

The Nike Air Max 90 "Chicago" here has tonal grey uppers inspired by the city's greystone houses, mention of the 312 area code on the inside of the tongues, mild sauce insoles as a tribute to Chicago's favorite condiment, shiny accents standing in for its metallic bean Cloud Gate sculpture and plenty more details that locals should appreciate.

There is no sneaker release date on this pair yet, but readers can sign up to be notified on their availability via the Nike SNKRS app.
