Woah now. So, it’s been a whole 20 years since Nike first launched their infamous Nike Air Max 95 and to mark this blissful period of unfaltering matrimony between Nike and their babies, they are back with some special edition silver versions. And they’re just as amazing this time round.
Platinum: 20 years of style
When they landed on the scene in 95, all clad in neon green and orange, the 95s the Max Air Technology ensuring the best absorbance and cushioning out there.
With everyone having different performance needs, the technology is so versatile it can meet the exact specifications of individual athletic requirements. And with the lightweight design, you can expect to expend less energy during your fitness session. Not just a pretty face, hey?
Hell, you can even see the science at work through the transparent panels if you really wanted to take a look (bet you didn’t know that was the original design point, did you?)
They landed on the scene in 95, all clad in neon green and orange and changed running shoes forever
And with design always at the forefront, it’s no surprise that celebrities like Rita Ora and Lily Allen are often spotted sporting the original nineties sneakers.
Nike aren’t breaking their vows this time either.
Both pairs come dressed for the occasion, with matching platinum tones to tip their toes to the celebration of two decades of industry-leading innovation.
What can you expect?
The men’s shoe arrives in a largely platinum leather design, with a swirly ‘Filigree’ graphic etched across the whole sneaker. As for the women’s, they take on a more basic silver, black and white design with a ‘raw and refined’ essence.
Definite proof that women’s sneaks don’t have to be all pink and lame… We’re excited to get back to trainer basics with these ones.
After all, original is always best (sorry amazingly beautiful Air Max 1X Liberty).
Fancy getting your toes into a pair of these?
The Air Max 95 ‘Anniversary’ are available now at selected global retailers and at nike.com/sportswear. What you waiting for?
