As the leaves anticipate their descent and cooler temperatures beckon, Nike is also making its seasonal transition. A perennial favorite, the Air Max 95, is taking the lead. Sergio Lozano's masterful creation is known for its striking layers and anatomical inspirations, and this fall, it's going darker and deeper, albeit with a refreshing twist.
At first glance, the latest Air Max 95 rendition captivates with its varying grayscale shades. The layered vamp overlays, synonymous with the 95's design, gradually transition from light to dark, the panels nearest the tongue wearing the deepest greys. This muted base provides an immaculate canvas for the surprise element: an unexpected splash of "Hyper Turquoise."
Miniature Swooshes, gracefully positioned on the lateral heel, the lace loops trimming the tongue, and the subtle “airmax” branding all indulge in this fresh mint hue. This contrasts the grayscale foundation and introduces a vibrant, lively note to the shoe's overall personality.
The soul of the sneaker, its game-changing sole unit, continues the contrast theme. While the bulk of the sole boasts a pitch-dark shade, a sudden burst of bold green in the visible Air units catches the eye, evoking memories of the design's groundbreaking introduction nearly three decades ago.
Keep your eyes peeled for those eager to get their hands on this gem; It's expected to be available at select retailers and Nike.com soon.
