The Nike Air Max 95 is one of the most innovative shoes in the Air Max family. Release in 1995, it was the first shoe to feature the Air Max cushioning system in both the heel and forefront. Along with great cushioning came superior heel support. The Air Max 95 sports a 3M reflective material. First designed as a running shoe, the Air Max 95 has transcended into a casual shoe as well. With over 150 colorways and retroes released, the Nike Air Max 95 stays ahead of the game on the track and street.
The Air Max 95 – light bone/dk curry-old moss features a blend of brown, khaki, and beige, with a black midsole. The midsole does tend to stand out since it is so dark and the rest of the shoe is light. The orange accents are a nice touch, and is even included in the shoe’s air unit. The Nike Air Max 95 was the first Nike shoe to have an Air Max heel which was compressed to different pressures. The air pressure ranges from a low 5PSI in the back of the heel to 25PSI directly underneath the heel to provide optimal cushioning. Not only do the Air Max units provide second to none cushioning, but it provides great heel support.
The Air Max 95 – SC old hickory/black features a completely brown upper. Even the stitching is brown, making it hard to view. The black accents, including the laces, inner lining, and Nike swoosh, all blend well with the shoe’s black midsole. The shoe is simple but that is the key to its popularity, and the key reason as to why it is so adored in the sneakerhead community.
