Share This Page: Nike Air Max 95 OG When the Nike Air Max 95 initially hit stores some 20 years ago, it was was an instant classic. The silhouette made in homage to the human form was a quick sell to both runners and sneakerheads, and for good reason. First released in 1995, the Air Max 95 was conceived in the mind of legendary designer Sergio Lozano. Though he received negative feedback during the development, the 95 grew into what many considered to be “The Air Max.” The sneaker's construction saw some innovation with the layered upper, 270-degree air unit and the air unit in the forefoot. The air units in this silhouette had varying PSI in the heel, now marked on the sole. The first colorway of these kicks was comprised of varying tones of grey on the upper. From the white laces, mess, and tongue, the grey hues darkened with each layer until they met with the black midsole. The neutral upper was accented with neon lace loops, Air Max logo on the tongue, and a small Swoosh near the ankle. The black midsole housed neon air units, and the shoe was finished out with a black outsole. The Nike Air Max 95 OG “Neon” is releasing for the twentieth anniversary of the silhouette in the original “Neon” colorway with a couple of tweaks. The majority of the sneaker remains unchanged with the layered grey upper and neon hits on the lace loops and Swoosh. The midsole remains the classic black with neon air units. Nike has added 3M reflective material on the heel and tongue for contrast. From the jump, the Nike Air Max 95 immediately hooked an audience with its slick design and innovative technology. 20 years later, it’s still holding its weight as one of the most important Nike sneakers to date. The Nike Air Max 95 OG “Neon” drops on July 25th in Men’s at $170. Cop a remastered legend before they are gone.
