Absent from retail since 1999, the Nike Air Max Deluxe will make its long-awaited return to retail this summer.
One of the first colorways on deck is an OG launch featuring a palette of blue, grey, orange and black, with tie-dye-like graphics running throughout its neoprene-constructed upper. Below sits a silver midsole and Air Max 97-inspired Max Air unit in orange.
This is one of several Air Max Deluxe colorways expected to hit shelves this year. It's being reported that Skepta will release a collaboration in red and black in July as well.
European launch calendars have this colorway listed for a July 12 release. That doesn't necessarily mean that the U.S. date will land on the same day, but we'll work with that information for now and keep you updated as the drop nears.
