The undisputed king of trainers is also the king of Air Max. Available right now is a trio of JD-exclusive women’s Nike Air Max 95s in essential shades. Back in black, good in grey, and right in white, the AM95’s formidable design is even more apparent when monochromatic.
The darkest of the three colourways proves that black isn’t boring, with a textural mix using smooth leather, patent leather, and mesh to reference the graduated layering of Sergio Lozano’s classic Air Max flagship.
The white-out version shares the same treatment, begging to be viewed up close for an eyeful of considered detail. With the midsole and Air units en blanc, the pure beauty of the Air Max 95 comes through.
However, the best of the lot is the grey number, with a smattering of subtle details hidden at first glance. An inverted tongue logo is a playful touch, as is the ‘cut-out’ lateral Swoosh at the heel, revealing a flash of pink that’s only noticed if the eyes can break their gaze from the rosy Air units.
Like the JD-exclusive Air Max releases of the early 2000s, things go full circle as the Nike Air Max 95 is at right at home on JD Sports Australia’s shelves and online. Remember, the Air Max 95 is ‘Only at JD’.
