The Nike Air Max 90 Cork model was recently released in celebration of the shoe's 25th anniversary. As consumers grow more environmentally responsible, brands are embracing sustainable products -- in this case cork -- and are choosing alternatives to ecologically harmful materials.

Cork is no longer a material that is synonymous with eco architecture and decor but is now an alternative to rubbers and fabrics that would adorn most sneakers. The Nike Air Max 90 Cork model is sustainable and chic, mixing its material with hints of red and white rubber and leather.

The shoe boasts the sportswear brand's iconic signage and will appeal to sneaker buffs and collectors across the globe. In addition to its bold aesthetics, the model is also super comfortable and blends fashion with function.
