Dave White‘s love of Nike Air Max sneakers is well documented through his incredible paintings that capture the sleek design and flashy colorways of some of Nike’s most iconic releases. Part pop-art, part sneakerhead homage to his personal grails, Dave White’s artwork took off and even landed him collaborative efforts with the Swoosh years down the road. Today we get a brief preview of his latest effort – the Dave White Nike Air Max 95 No-Sew.The Nike Air Max 95 No-Sew saw countless releases in 2014, as the modern update to Sergio Lozano’s iconic creation ditched the sewed-on side panel waves for a new seamless Tape construction for a lightweight ride. The modern twist allowed for the wavy aesthetic to stay but in a completely new form. Now the Dave White Nike Air Max 95 is here to twist one of the lesser heralded version of the Air Max 95 into its own work of art inspired by rabbits in the countryside.
So far, two different colorways have been leaked featuring bold brush strokes and paint splatter on the side panel waves. A vibrant orange colorway showcases the new technology that went into the No-Sew AM95 while the more subtle of the two, a Light Bone and Tan version, displays original rabbit artwork by White which matches a preview video posted to the artist’s Instagram a few hours ago.
Check out the video teaser below and stay tuned for more updates right here on Sneaker News.The Nike Air Max 95 is still in No-Sew mode for the time being. As winter is right around the corner, it’s a little surprising that the shoe isn’t shifting into Sneakerboot mode like so many other Nike Sportswear silhouettes. Then again, it didn’t jump into that realm last year with the inagural Sneakerboot collection, so maybe that just isn’t meant to be for this mid-90s pair of runners. Stay with us after the break to flip through some more photos on these Air Maxes and then grab your pair straight from gnjsportsinc on eBay.
