The Air Max 90 retails for $140, while the Air Zoom Spiridon is priced at $160. They drop at select Nike stores and Nike.com on June 14, perfectly timed for the first match of the World Cup.

As part of Nike’s International Collection, the “One World” Air Max 90 celebrates the renowned soccer tournament through a colorful display of country flags sprawled across the shoe’s upper alongside the iridescent Swoosh.

The collage represents the many countries that have competed in the quadrennial event, with the design being the latest in the lineage of Air Max sneakers that date back to 1987.
