Upper material varies depending on the colorway, which could be premium leather, textile, a combination of the two, or other materials. Regardless, the shoe, with its luxe materials and craftsmanship, shows off the iconic look of the classic 1995 runner with added modern upgrades.

Notable Features

The Nike AM95 LX is an updated luxe version of the classic Air Max 95 silhouette. Regardless of upper material combination, this rendition retains the signature Air Units duo in the forefoot and heel for exceptional cushioning. Completing the look is the Nike Sportswear “NSW” branding embroidered to the heel area and an Air Max branding to the tongue.

Nike Air Max 95 LX History

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.

With the comeback of retro kicks in the sneaker fashion trends, Nike recently released a luxe version of the AM95 called the Nike Air Max 95 LX. It is a women's exclusive model made available in countless colorways with varying upper materials in premium quality and craftsmanship.

Some of the colorways include “Particle Rose” and “Dusty Peach,” which are both great additions to anyone’s collection of pink sneakers. There is also the “Red” AM95 LX if you are looking to strut a pair of red Nike sneakers, or the Nike Air Max 95 LX “Tan and Black” for black sneakers. Other colorways are the “Smokey Blue/ Mushroom,” “White Gold,” “Guava Ice,” and “Oil Grey” among others.
