“This latest capsule pays tribute to one of my favorite Nike sneakers, the Air Max 95, by looking at how it could be approached with modern technology.”– Kim Jones
This is how Jones talks about his latest project with Nike, on an Air Max 95 that we got to see for the first time at the end of last year, and that bridges the eras of technology and aesthetics with a mini-Swoosh on the toe and a perforated upper. inspired by the Air Max 360. The original Air Max 95 colors, including Total Orange and Volt, stand out against an inverted gradient to offer a new twist on a nostalgia-inducing scheme. The novelty comes with the use of Nexkin, a material used in recent models such as Zoom Fly SP and React Element 87. The capsule will be provided with a collection of clothes to match the shoes, this combines garments in neutral tones with others in striking colors and oversized logos.
The Nike Air Max 95 x Kim Jones will be released on March 19 through SNKRS and select stores. Although both the Volt Air Max 95 shoe and matching clothing will be exclusive in the UK.
