The brand’s design team at the swoosh has been hard at work creating new hues for its Nike Air Max 95 models, which have almost cult following. As the globally acclaimed Air Max technology celebrates its 35th anniversary in 2022, Nike is totally immersed in the festivities. That’s exactly why the shoe brand will soon be releasing their “Anatomy of Air” rendition as a tribute to this milestone.
The soon-to-be-released Nike Air Max 95 “Anatomy of Air” shoe edition is set to launch on Thursday, July 28, 2022 at 7:30 p.m. Sneakerheads will be able to get their hands on these flaky models through Nike’s SNKRS app e-commerce stores as well as other partner retail marketplaces. Each pair will come with a price tag of $180.
Nike Air Max 95 Anatomy of Air Trainers Dressed in Layered Suede Overlays
Since its introduction in 1987, Nike’s Air Max technology has caused major revolutions in the footwear industry. The previous “History of Air” campaign apparently paved the way for the most recent “Anatomy of Air” series. For those unfamiliar, the brand’s revolutionary celebration took place in the mid-2000s. Here’s what Nike has to say about the revolution of its Air Max 95 shoe:
“Remember the revolution. 1987 saw the birth of the Air Max lineage, showcasing visible Air for the first time. What started as a cushioning experiment quickly became an icon on the trail and on the street. Over the years it has been redesigned and revamped, but the legacy still remains.
The brand’s official webpage explains the design of the upcoming shoe as follows:
“Flex your style in the Air Max 95. Drawing inspiration from the human body and ’90s runway aesthetics, it taps into “the anatomy of air” with a healthy dose of muscle-inspired color . Graphics on the outsole give insight into what moves you, twisted rope laces bring a touch of DNA, and the bone-colored midsole ties it together for unbreakable style. If that’s not enough, the signature side panels (made from premium suede) feature decorative stitching for a fibrous texture that’s more head-turning than iron-pumping gym rats.
The creative brain behind this shoe is Sergio Lozano, a prominent Nike designer. Inspired by the human figure, he created the Nike Air Max 95, one of the most remarkable shoes the swoosh brand has ever produced. Nike’s creative team has highlighted this fact and included all the background information on the latest Anatomy of Air shoe design.
The upcoming shoes sport premium suedes and fine mesh throughout. Hues, namely “Team Red”, “University Red” and separate elements of pink were used to make them. Additionally, shades of gray and bone white can also be spotted in different areas of the shoe, again inspired by human anatomy.
The puff suede top layers mimic the muscle and nerve layers, which sit just below the epidermis. The white tips are highlighted with gray suede. Adjacent to the toe, the tongue flaps feature crisp white mesh which is surrounded by white eyelets and off-white lace closures. To top it off, these laces are nicely combined with flesh-colored aiguillettes.
As for the tabs, these are done in half and half, with red and white colors. Towards the collars, these tabs are complemented by satin red textiles accented with “Air Max” lettering. On the back, the tabs are made of gray satin textiles and are embroidered with “Anatomy of Air” in an elegant font.
Here, the insoles are fashioned in off-white, while the insole is complete with fleshy pink insoles that are printed with dark red Nike Air branding. The medial sides are adorned with tiny white swooshes.
Additionally, the heel counters and soles are constructed using bone white elements. The heels display Nike Air branding, while the chunky soles show off their Air units incorporated from the semi-translucent panels.
Stay tuned for the next Nike Air Max 95 “Anatomy of Air” colorway. Slated for release on July 28 this year, these brilliantly executed shoes will be available for $180 each.
