Nike’s Air Max 95 has been making waves since it made its debut 25 years ago; now, the famed model is about to cause a stir once more with the revival of its OG Neon colour-up.
ACG designer Sergio Lozano spearheaded its design, drawing inspiration from a rainy day at Nike’s Beaverton HQ, plus the human anatomy. The inspiration is clear to see: the pair’s final design boasted a gradient grey upper that resembled the geographical markings of eroded rock walls, muscle fibre and flesh-inspired layered uppers, nylon eyelets that were fashioned after the ribcage, plus a sturdy midsole shank that took after the spine.
There’s no denying that this pair’s gradient grey mesh and suede upper and striking neon hits to the Swooshes, tongue, eyelets and Air bubbles is one of the most seminal makeups to appear on the Air Max 95. This particular pair takes it one step closer to the 1995 OG with the original PSI measurements on the soleplate – a feature which disappeared from the model for a fair few years.
Enter the draw for the Nike Air Max 95 ‘Neon’ via the size? launches app soon; it’ll also be available in selected size? stores on Thursday 17th December. It’s available in men’s and women’s sizes and priced at £140. Good Luck!
