The Nike Air Max 90 DQM ‘Bacon’ trainer has become something of a legend for Air Max collectors since it’s original release back in the early noughties. In 2004, Nike teamed up with DQM (Dave’s Quality Meats), a New York sneaker & streetwear store which was started by Dave Oritz and Chris Keeffe.  The store featured a butchers theme throughout which is where the inspiration for the Bacon Air Max trainer originated. The uppers of the Air Max 90 were transformed into a tasty breakfast treat with bacon inspired colourways.
