Saw it on sneakernews.  Looks like Spring 2013.  I like the look and shape of the 90, but I'm curious if that yellowed midsole can be scrubbed down to white.

The Nike Air Max 90 ‘Infrared’ is one of those styles that we can thankfully count on to come back around every couple of years. The Nike Air Max 1 in the original sport red makeup is a less frequent retro, but has nonetheless made the rounds plenty of times to where you should have a pair in your collection by now. If you’re missing either though Spring 2013 will offering up a few, albeit with the faux VNTG styling applied that has them looking quite different from any recent retro. The sneakers don’t go too overboard on that treatment though, registering as some of the best we’ve seen with the weathered look. Click through with us for a better view of both and let us know if you’re looking forward to the Nike Air Max 1 and Air Max 90 OG colorways coming back next year. Photo: Sole Haven

Down for both, my 2009 AM1 is starting to get beat and I can get unDS my other pairs of the 2010 AM90. If they can get the mesh looking like the original stuff on the AM1 I'll be really happy, the mudguard looks higher than it did on the 2009 pair.

Is there a reversal now in the at least 5 year fight against the VNTG soles? I remember that just about every other shoe that's gotten the treatment has been met with resistance from people buying. I don't mind it since it can usually come right off with a little bit of cleaning.

I'll never understand the vintage treatment. That said, if the yellowing can be scrubbed off like it has on previous shoes given the vintage treatment, count me in for 2 pairs of Infras. Can never have enough and that shape does look good.

it looks like those might be coming out with the vintage treatment too. I'm shocked they're not dropping this year for the 25th Anniversary, but oh well.

I'm not too scared of the catalog pictures of the Vintage AM1, it looks like on the sample they have floating they already got the soles to be the proper colors and it doesn't look like they have that weird nylon tongue with the stuffing spilling out on the sample.

AM1 midsoles are easy to paint, so the weathered sole doesnt matter. I just wish the side material didnt slant. I mean, how hard is it for them to make it straight and even? Come on Nike, at least get that right.
