During the ‘90s era, performance basketball shoes dominated the sneaker industry. But that did not hinder Nike from developing a new set of innovative footwear that would represent the running shoe category. Then came in 1995 the revolutionary Nike Air Max 95. As designed by Nike ACG designer Sergio Lozano, the shoe exhibited a bold silhouette that instantly left a mark in the Air Max saga and the history of sneakers in general. The distinctive rippled or wavy design on the upper, for one, is hard not to miss. The sole, on the other hand, features visible Air Units in the forefoot and heel.
