It would be surprising to think that Nike has not implemented more maroon hues on this iconic silhouette but the truth is, they haven’t. For some reason, the Swoosh implements more orange-red or “Infrared” hues onto their decades-old flagship running sneaker, however, the “New Maroon” colorway might be a better look for this silhouette. Either way, we have concept artists to cover almost everything and let the fans decide what they prefer. This time, concept artists have come up with a pretty attractive new colorway that looks to be a spinoff of another Air Max 90 rendition from the past. Presenting, the Nike Air Max 90 Reverse New Maroon.
The Air Max 90 is not the sneaker you would pick to resell as there are too many of them and not all of them are limited or hyped. However, what they are is a shoe that’s multi-seasonal, multi-functional, and definitely very attractive which you can dress up on a number of occasions. You probably can’t wear them at a formal presentation but they can definitely be worn on most informal occasions. With classy colorways such as this Air Max 90 Reverse New Maroon, you definitely don’t have to be worried about looking too shabby!
Coming to the upper on this sneaker, it is seemingly constructed with a combination of mesh and leather with maroon, black, grey, and white hits, We probably would have liked a two or three-tonal color tone more but these do just fine as well. Perhaps if the Swooshes were given a different color the look would have improved. Grey toes and mudguards blend right in and extend onto the rears of the shoe. The rear quarters feature maroon cutouts with white embossed “Air Max” tags that complement the other white hits on the shoe.

Back to the shoe, the toe boxes are also black mesh, matching the collars. Lower leather eye stays are grey and get tucked underneath maroon plastic eye stay panels with traditional black laces hooped through them. Throats are also black and lead up to a pair of black tongues with titular maroon tags and white “Nike Air” branding. Black sock liners with dark interiors provide a stealthier appearance. Meanwhile, cropped white leather Swooshes on the sides, maroon midsoles, and clean white outsoles finish off the design. For similar content and more, stay tuned!
