Nike celebrates the 20th anniversary of the Air Max 95 by updating the venerable silhouette for the 21st century. The new Air Max 95 Ultra Jacquard and the Women’s Air Max 95 Ultra were created by a team of designers with strong connections to the original shoe. The Nike Air Max 95 Ultra Jacquard features an age-old Jacquard weaving process on the one-piece upper, supported by second generation Nike Flywire that replaces the nylon webbing eyestays of the original. The women’s counterpart, the Air Max 95 Ultra, embodies a less-is-more design approach: the forefoot Air-Sole unit is removed to eliminates excess material, while the application of no-sew films on the upper means the traditional six panel construction is reduced down to one layer. The reversal of the iconic gradation, leading to a clean white midsole, is the finishing touch.
The Nike Air Max 95 Ultra Jacquard and Women’s Air Max 95 Ultra will be available through select Nike Sportswear retailers and online beginning July 16.
