Nike Air Max ZM950: Modernizing a classic
Nike brought out something new to pay homage to the 25th anniversary of the iconic Nike Air Max 95. The Nike Air Max ZM950 features a look inspired by the classic Air Max iteration, reworked to enhance comfort and give a modernized appeal. It has a sculpted upper that displays flowing lines, reminiscent of the popular Nike Air Max 97. Meanwhile, the renowned Air Max 95's toecap finishes the forefoot design.
What are the updates?
While the brand retained the overall shape and the toe box mudguard of the AM 95, this kick features several updated elements:
- Nike ditched the full-length Air Max unit and used the chunky Air Unit at the heel and Zoom Air unit at the forefoot. This stunning update enhances the springy feel and cushioned comfort.
- Found in the midfoot is the sculpted TPU that holds the Zoom Air and the Air unit together.
- New cord-like webbing runs down on the side to add structure, provide lockdown fit, and create a one-off look.
