Conceptualized by designer Sergio Lozano, it was from the most unlikely inspiration, the human anatomy. Yet, it was the most fitting to be a Nike Air Max. After all, Bill Bowerman, the late co-founder of Nike, famously said “If you have a body, you are an athlete.” A cut-out diagram of skin (mesh), spine (midsole), rib cage (straps), and the gradient upper (muscles). The perfect synthesis occurred when technical elements, such as BRS 1000 carbon rubber and the first ever forefoot Nike Air unit, were added. All of which made the Air Max 95 something of a poster child on how far sneaker design could go. This year, Nike is bringing back this icon again with the re-launch of Air Max 95 original colorway, including the perennial favorite, Cool Grey and Neon Yellow. All 3 are now available at NikeStore.com and other Nike retailers.
