Style: Air Max 95
Release Date: 1995
The Air Max 95 is one of the most popular styles from Nike’s Air Max family. Originally released in 1995, the style has returned time and time again over the years due to its enormous following from sneaker enthusiasts across the globe.
Sergio Lazano designed the Air Max 95 with inspiration taken from different parts of the human anatomy including the skeleton, muscles, spine and skin. The Air Max 95 was also the first Nike sneaker to feature visible air cushioning in the forefoot.
Despite the vast assortment of Air Max 95 renditions to have emerged over the years, the original colorway (cool grey-neon yellow) has remained the most favorable color combination amongst sneaker collectors and aficionados.
