Nike Recraft the Air Max 95 for Sneakerheads-In-Training
Release: 8 October 2021

It’s been argued that collecting kids shoes is a more enjoyable pursuit than the adult-sized versions, and this Nike Air Max 95 drop present a compelling example of junior heat.

These AM95s occupy the recently launched ‘Recraft’ category that Nike have rolled out across various classics, which all purportedly are more accurate recreations of their original shape. This is particularly significant for the AM95, which has over the years undergone some revisions to its design that has not been unnoticed by eagle-eyed sneakerheads.

Furthermore, kids shoe have often thrown out proportions when shrinking the adults’ equivalent, resulting in bulbous toes or undersized panels. Thankfully, it looks like Nike have cracked the design code, and included everything that needs to be found on the mini-me AM95.

This means forefoot Air units are back (previous versions borrowed the AM93 midsole), and the upper looks more like how most grown-up sneakerheads recognise the 95. And they’ll be pretty envious that this wheat, white and black colourway is only available from sizes 4 to 7 per the Grade School size run. However, ,parental sneakerheads or those with nieces and nephews now have a sweet sneaker gift lined up for the next birthday.

This Nike Air Max 95 is available now from Finish Line.
