The Nike Sportswear crew has introduced a number of fruit-themed ensembles in recent months.
This sneaker is highlighted by the bulk of supporting components
The most recent? A blood orange-inspired Nike Air Max 90. The newly-released pair, like other Swoosh summer releases, has a largely “colorless” aesthetic throughout its leather, mesh, and TPU construction. The profile swooshes, inner-lining, and details on the spine all have “Black” contrast, while the bulk of supporting components (i.e. eye-stays, logos) sport an eye-catching, on-theme “Blood Orange” hue. Underfoot, Air Max units indulge in the fruity flair, with the most direct tribute to the citrus family member appearing on the sock-liners.
Overall, it seems like the Nike Air Max 90 “Blood Orange” will be a hit with sneakerheads and fans of the original AM90s. It’s a new take on an old favorite that stays true to the original while adding some interesting new design elements.
