Atmos x Nike Air Max 90 'Reversed Duck Camo'

As already mentioned the Air Max 90 celebrates its birthday this year. What could be better than celebrating this with a souvenir of one of the most beautiful 90's models of all time? Exactly: Nothing! Like the last years, Nike gives us the chance to buy a piece of nostalgia for Air Max Day. As the name suggests, the Air Max 90 will get the unique 'Duck Camo' colorway. Only the other way around or reversed. That is, the colors have been swapped, which makes the toebox shine in bright infrared. The eyestay, the upper eyelet area, the logo window as well as the midsole wedge come in a deep black and form a nice contrast to the white laces and the white midsole. Here are a few more pictures of the shoe and also a picture of the 2013 release for comparison.


Atmos x Nike Air Max 2090 'Duck Camo'

A completely new silhouette. In addition to this, a direct collaboration with Atmos and an iconic colorway. This will be LEGEN…..DARY! ?The Nike Air Max 2090 combines two strong sneakers from Nike with a touch of futurism to make a statement. If you take a closer look at the silhouette, you will realize after a while that the Nike Air Max 90 is inspired by it. For example the overlay on the side (the mudguard), the backtab (the area with the big logo on the heel) as well as the air bubble area remind you of the 90s. The shape of the shoe, in this case the toe as well as the narrow shape of the shoe also remind us of the relatively new model of the Nike Air Max 270 React.

Short conclusion:

I think that Nike and Atmos have done a really good job here. Not only because they have combined and reissued these two beautiful silhouettes, but also because they have thought about the colorway. The two brands didn't just slap the 'Duck Camo' on the upper, but placed it discreetly and yet visibly under a transparent black fabric. We like! ??
