Nike Combines The Air Max 90 And Air 180 In Latest “Evolution Of Icons”

Nike’s recently introduced “Evolution of Icons” collection has been a nostalgia-heavy trip down memory lane, each newcomer a reference to the brand’s past feats. In the case of this forthcoming Air Max 2090, the brand is bridging influences from both the AM90 as well as the AM180 as the futuristic silhouette borrows their respective “Infrared” and “Ultramarine” colorways.

At a glance, the “Ultramarine” is the easiest to make out, its blues pronounced as they dress the overlaid Swoosh as well as the entirety of the inside lining. And as the retro scheme makes use of the “Infrared” signature, Nike has taken the opportunity to liken it to the equally beloved 1990s legend. As a result, the loud tone is effectively doubled up, coated atop not only the back tooling but also the “Air Max” branded window, the molded heel tab, the tongue’s embedded branding, and the forward cap of the tread.

Grounded in neutral suedes and mesh, this Air Max 2090 should be hitting Nike.com as well as select retailers soon.

In other news, the Air Jordan 7 Flint is returning in a more a true-to-form fashion.

Updated January 8th, 2021: The US release date is tentatively set for February 1st, 2021.
