The Nike Air Max 95 Goes GreyRelease: TBC
The Nike Air Max 95 is preparing to go multiple shades of grey... plus some beige and black to complete a fairly tonal vibe. Making full use of the AM95’s signature layered upper, this colourway mixes a couple of shades of grey with cream, beige and black for a busy yet welcome rendition of the popular Air Max.
The Air Max 95 has been an enduring presence on the sneaker zeitgeist for over two decades now, still filling as many rotations as it did when it debuted back in 1995. According to sneaker lore, the idea for the layered upper all started on a rainy Beaverton day when Nike designer Sergio Lozano was staring out of his office window in search of inspiration.
As the rain fell, Sergio started to imagine the eroding landscape unearthing the strata below the surface. The concept of previously hidden layers resonated once more when Lozano later considered the anatomy of a foot which, of course, features similarly layered muscle fibres and flesh under the skin. And applying that aesthetic to a sneaker proved to be a winning formula.
Pairs of this tonal Air Max 95 are expected to hit soon at Nike and selected Swoosh stockists.
