History of Nike Air Max 95 Premium

First Air Max was created in 1987 by Tinker Hatfield, the veteran shoe designer. Design inspiration for the Air Max 95 came from Sergio Lozano picturing out the process of erosion with the earlier sketches of the shoe containing striations that are commonly found in the walls of the Grand Canyon.

He further raised the level of design by introducing a visible air sole unit at the forefoot for maximum cushioning. Another noticeable identity is the neon yellow colorway that helps it become visible when running in the rain or at night. He also worked on a gray colorway that seems to lighten upwards emphasizing the areas that would often get muddied or dirty when running in the rain.

Nike Air Max 95 Premium support

Air Max 95 became a hit with its original $140 price and soon helped Nike Running reclaim its spot as a crowd drawer for the brand which has for years been sidelined by Nike basketball releases.

Now, more than 20 years since it was first released, the Air Max 95 has continued to release exciting colorways as a vintage running shoe that has shifted into a popular lifestyle sneaker for the brand.
