The Air Max 90 is one of the most popular sneakers to date, and Nike is constantly thinking of new colorways for it. But here at Sneakerz, we think we can create a great colorway for the shoe ourselves. So, lo and behold our latest creation, the Air Max 90 Electric Blue.
Dressed in a black leather upper, with white mesh panels on the toe box and around the heel, the base of the sneaker is relatively simplistic but has a contrast that flaunts the upper’s different materials. The midsole also comes in black, but the sneaker gets its name from the electric blue accents on the outsole, the TPU around the air bubble, and the Nike tick. A slightly darker, azure blue, then covers the laces, the Nike branding on the tongue, and the lining of the shoe.
Although it is now worn casually, the Air Max 90 was originally designed to be a running sneaker. Therefore, the connotations of speed a color with electric in the name has. fits the model very well. The model stands out and is targeted towards the creative dressers out there, complementing an outfit with greys, oranges, and bright pinks. But the sneaker would also work perfectly for a bright 90s look. It has a bold color scheme thanks to the black paneling, that accentuates the electric blue, and complements the overall eccentric shape of the shoe.
The Air Max 90 has a long history with the color blue, with one of the most popular original colorways being the Air Max 90 Laser Blue. And in October of last year, Nike brought the sneaker back, much to the excitement of OG fans of the model. Sure, the colorway wasn’t as popular on re-release as it once was, but the real fans knew the significance of such a shoe. Our Air Max 90 Electric Blue is similar to the Laser Blue, but we decided to cover all of the leather and midsole in black, for a more eye-catching look.
2021 has also been a great year for bright blues. Some of the most popular releases have been the Air Jordan 1 and 4 “University Blue,” as well as the Nike SB Dunk Low Blue Fury that was released back in April. Plus, with everyone indoors and out of the office, athleisure has been extremely successful, which Air Max 90s are perfect for. Therefore, we think our concept sneaker is ideal for 2021.
