Nike Air Max 90 DQM •  Bacon

Nike Air Max 90 DQM • Bacon

The DQM x Nike Air Max 90 is the stuff of legends. Originally released in 2004 as a limited-edition collaboration, the shoe drew inspiration from Dave Ortiz’ butcher shop-themed boutique, with bacon as the main course.

The early 2000s were a very different time for the sneaker world than what we are experiencing today. Then, Nike was the undisputed king of footwear, leading the way with silhouettes like the SB Dunk, the all-new Nike Kobe line, and of course, Air Max silhouettes. In 2004, the brand teamed up with New York City’s DQM (Dave’s Quality Meats) boutique for an exclusive release of the fan-favorite Air Max 90. Taking inspiration from DQM’s butcher shop theme, the “Bacon” Air Max 90 displays an array of colors that immediately evoke the idea of tasty breakfast meat. Both light and dark shades of brown, red, and a splash of pink make up the legendary DQM x Nike Air Max 90.

The legendary 2004 Air Max 90 release from New York City boutique Dave’s Quality Meats and Nike is a fan-favorite Air Max, and will likely be limited, releasing from both Nike and select high-level retailers for $140+.
