The men’s Nike Air Max 95 NS GPX is solely offered in the sizes for men’s casual shoes ranging from 4 to 15. Women who fancy a pair should go 1.5 sizes down from their normal shoe size. This kick fits true to size.

It utilizes the traditional lace-up system for an adjustable snug fit, while lace loop eyelets and tongue straps help keep shoelaces and tongue in place.

With a low-top profile and a relatively sleeker upper design, the Nike Air Max 95 NS GPX is an easy kick to match with a multitude of ensembles. Let its iconic beefy midsole and contrasting logo add oomph to your monochromatic look or complement its colorways with similar hued shirts or accessories.

This pair’s most striking feature is its huge and contrasting logos that take up half of the lateral side. Moreover, most sneaker enthusiasts and longtime Air Max 95 fans instantly noticed this shoe’s smoother no-sew upper. This alteration received mixed reactions from consumers.

The creation of Nike's revolutionary Air-Sole technology commenced in the latter part of the 1970s. Almost a decade after, the first model from the now-iconic Air Max range was conceived. Dubbed as the Air Max 1, the shoe was the first ever to incorporate a visible Air unit in its midsole, and was automatically considered as groundbreaking. The AM1's success paved the way for a new Nike collection that housed plenty more sneaker models that would eventually become legendary.

One of the most recognizable silhouettes in the Air Max range is the Nike Air Max 95. Designed by Sergio Lozano, a trained industrial engineer, he naturally applied his training in designing shoes which resulted in shoes that pushed the boundaries of sneaker design.

The Nike Air Max 95's initial design was influenced by striations found on the Grand Canyon's walls and the process of rain eroding the Earth. However, Lozano later changed the story behind the design as advised by his mentor and famous designer Tinker Hatfield. After going through a number of anatomy books, Lozano decided that the upper's layered panels took after the human body's flesh and muscle fibers, while the midsole was inspired by the spine.

The AM95's unprecedented design didn't do well at first, but it eventually became a must-have among the youth during the 90s and was later considered as an essential kick in every sneakerhead's collection. Also, the shoe has been reinterpreted in many ways a telltale sign of its undeniable commercial success.

One of the AM 95’s many iterations is the Nike Air Max 95 NS GPX. A men's shoe, this sneaker features a smoothed out upper, trading its iconic line with huge logos on its lateral sides. Check the Nike Air Max 95 NS GPX in Blue or Obsidian and Dust / Dark Pewter / White / Volt.

  • The shoe’s upper is crafted from leather and mesh materials.
  • Reflective details are placed on the kick’s heel counter and lacing system.
  • Padded collar and tongue provide enhanced comfort and cushioning.
  • The Nike Air Max 95 NS GPX’s signature foam sole with Max Air technology offers time-tested comfort and support.
