Nike Air Max 2090 “USA”
Color: White/Chile Red/Deep Royal Blue/White
Style Code: CT1091-101
Release Date: 2020
Debuted on Air Max Day, the Nike Air Max 2090 first seemed to be a futuristic one-off built to honor the Air Max 90‘s 30th anniversary. But with releases still arriving en masse, the silhouette has established itself as mainstay within the inline Nike calendar. We’ve seen multiple nods to the past as well as simple, understated colorways, but its latest — which visually leans closer to years we’ve yet to see — is arguably the most fitting as it pairs together punchy, vibrant tones. Chile Red plays up the accents across the eye stay as well as the contrast stitch, while a swatch of complementing light blues run just adjacent underneath the translucent shell. Deep Royal Blue seats the mudguard paneling at the side as well as the mesh of the tongue and heel, while the tooling and back tab embellish with intricate molds and a tinted see-through finish.
