The All-Time Greatest ‘Obsidian’ Colourways
Did you know that obsidian is actually volcanic glass, formed when lava cools rapidly? No wonder it’s one of the most explosive colourways in existence. Seeing numerous renditions across the Jumpman’s extensive catalogue and the broader Nike canon, the deep, inky blue will bring a volcanic drip to any rotation.

The anatomical Nike Air Max 95 deserves a spot in any self-respecting sneakerhead’s collection. The ‘Obsidian’ colourway allows all of Sergio Lozano’s design DNA to shine through.

In terms of all-time great ‘Obsidian’ colourways, this one is right up there in the Air Max pantheon. Inflamed with fiery red outsoles, the Air Max 1 ‘Obsidian’ landed in 2017 to celebrate the model’s 30th anniversary. Originally taking flight in 1988, this is a classic that still stands strong.

The OG and invariably the hardest. An infallible palette that landed in 1988, it’s still difficult to find a better colourway in Nike’s vaunted Air Max catalogue. Originally known as simply ‘Navy/Red’, the rendition later took on a life of its own across the Swoosh and Jumpman canon.
