The Nike Air Max 95 'Naija' Kicks Into JD Sports Release: 28 September 2020
Led in the past by legendary players like Jay-Jay Okocha and Nwankwo Kanu, the Nigerian national football team has always been synonymous with flair and panache. In recent years, that reputation has been as much aesthetic as it is athletic, with Nike producing some of the best football kits to ever brandish the Nigeria Football Federation badge. The kits have gone on to become streetwear staples, and now the ‘Naija’ spirit has infiltrated the sneakersphere, with the release of a stunning Air Max 95.
Following up the ‘Naija’ Presto, this colourway takes the vibrant neon green theme to the world of Air Max, making use of the omnipresent 95 and its distinctive, multi-layered upper construction. Each layer mixes together a different texture and shade of green, creating a psychedelic cascading effect with contrasting geometric patterns. Offsetting the main hue is a black midsole infused with matching green Air units, as well as a black toe box. The tongues make use of ripstop material, while the patterned eye stay loops match the overall theme. Last but not least, the insoles come stamped with the Nigeria Football Federation badge, adding a final patriotic punch.
The Nike Air Max 95 ‘Naija’ is available now in store and online, exclusively at JD Sports Australia!
