UPDATE: 20 years on, today the Air Max 95 takes on a new form in the shape of the AM95 Ultra Jacquard. Modernised through the roof but still got the feels of the classic we all know and love. Peep above to see how good they look on foot and then proceed to your local Hype DC or hit up Hype DC online to get behind the celebrations.
With 2015 marking the 20th anniversary of the beloved Air Max 95, Nike has gone back to the drawing board and redesigned the shoe with all the benefits of modern manufacturing techniques. The Air Max 95 Ultra Jacquard pays homage to the anatomical roots behind Sergio Lozano's revolutionary design, with a musculature inspired one-piece Jacquard woven upper and second generation Nike Flywire designed to move with the foot. The absolute cherry on top for runner fans has to be the new Ultra sole unit, making the 95 lighter and more flexible than ever before. The Air Max 95 Ultra Jacquard goes on sale on Nike.com at select Nike Sportswear retailers on July 16.
