From the lateral view, this looks like an unassuming black Air Max 95 with select pink accents. But when you flip it to the medial side, it smacks the eyes in the bright rosy shade.
Often, sneaker colourways are looked at too holistically, ensuring each foot’s colour-blocking is symmetrical. But this time, Nike think laterally and make each foot mismatched down the middle, while preserving the pair’s mirrored appearance.
In another clever touch, the overall execution recalls the super-limited Sole Collector Air Max 95 from 2006. Take a look below and you’ll see what we mean.
This black and pink 95 releases on September 14.
