yes and no. infrared am90's (my fav pair i'm a shoe head too) are retro'ed every so often because they were one of the original colorways of a classic. that is why you see am95 retro'ed with the trademark grey and neon green every so often just as the am97 is with the old silver, maybe a different swoosh occasionally. that is different than being able to re-create a pair of finals, MLK, kobe's etc etc.
even when you can re-create a colorway there is usually one distinguishable feature. for instance; you can re-create home and away kobe IV's which were limited exclusives to HOH's and some niketowns but, you cannot recreate the gradient toe that some of those limited colorways had.
i still miss my NIKE ID breath free's...
