The Air Max 95 is a combination of equal parts functionality and fashion. Designed by Sergio Lozano, this release has spanned more than two decades and still remains a Nike icon. Lozano’s inspiration comes from human anatomy and the Earth’s movement. A rib-like lacing system locks you in for the perfect fit. A layered upper is meant to resemble the eroding earth. Spinal-cord inspiration runs along the midsole. The classic Nike Swoosh is placed unconventionally so as not to distract from the sneaker’s design. But, what makes the Air Max 95 standout from the crowd is its visible Air.
Created in the late 70’s and introduced shortly after, Nike Air is a revolution in and of itself. At the time, Nike’s sneakers featured pressurized air pockets under the shoe’s forefoot and heel. The release of the pressure with every step created a springy bounce that has maintained its stature as an iconic cushioning technology for decades. While Nike’s sneakers featured this Air for years before the inception of the Air Max 95, this sneaker was the first to show it off like never before. Visible Air pockets along the midsole showed off just how innovative this technology was while bringing a light and airy feel to a chunky street sneaker.
The Air Max 95 not only featured visible Air but was also the first model to feature a black midsole. The original Neon colorway has been released more than ten times. The Nike Air Max collection is inventive, fashion-forward and above all else, comfortable. With dozens of silhouettes, colorways and collaborations, it’s no wonder Nike is at the forefront of the sneaker revolution.
