My Story:

Rather similar to the Total 90 Aerow in 2004 but with darker blue circles around the ball and the encirled 90 that has a black background and white fonts.  Just as different and just as cult-like.

 

The Official Story:

The continued distinctive visual design of the Total 90 Aerow Ball was making it something of a cult classic, but there was genuine Nike thinking behind the design. It enabled players to identify the ball more clearly in flight (particularly against a crowd background), allowing the players more response time. Which also saw the introduction of a yellow “Hi-Vis” ball for use in the winter months.

Official Ball of the 2005/06 Premier League season, the Total 90 Aerow Ball continued the hand-stitched high performance PU with linear grooves for consistent, sustained flight. The PU foam provided greater stability, durability and performance in cold weather. Whilst the specially modified 6-wing carbon latex bladder used Nike’s Air Block II air retention system.
