It’s about this time of year where we start to see the influx of Chinese New Year releases hit the sneakersphere. While the quality tends to vary, Nike have come through with some early gold in the form of an Air Max 95.
Celebrating the Year of the Pig, this AM95 is highlighted by its dark pink midsole and luxurious gold detailing on the eyestays and Swoosh branding — perhaps a nod to the money-filled red envelopes. The trademark mudguard is elevated with a hairy texture, setting this colourway apart from many of its contemporary counterparts.
Nike’s Air Max 95 ‘Chinese New Year’ has already hit retailers in China, but you can expect a global release closer to February.
