Model: Air Max 95
Release Date: March 19
Buy: Nike SNKRS and select retailers
What We’re Saying: After delivering one of the hottest releases of 2020 with the Dior x Air Jordan 1, Kim Jones' next Nike collaboration has arrived — Air Max model in the Air Max 95. Yet while we usually love Jones' work, this collab just looks a bit...meh. See for yourself in the gallery below.
Speaking on the project, the designer said, “This latest capsule celebrates one of my favorite Nike shoes, the Air Max 95, by looking at the way it could be addressed with modern technology.”
The collaborative Air Max 95 features upper panels that are said to draw inspiration from the human anatomy. Decorating these gray areas is a series of black Morse code-like dots and dashes, while bright orange or Volt eyestays provide pops of color underneath the dark-colored webbing. Additional orange/Volt accents appear via the Air Max branding on the tongue, as black Swooshes brand the pair at the toe and heel, just above Kim Jones' name. Reflective silver accents draw further attention to the Air Max 95, which also features orange/Volt shading within the Max Air units. The shoe is then finished with a translucent outsole.
The Volt colorway of Kim Jones' Air Max 95 will release alongside a complementary apparel range exclusively in the UK on March 19, while the Total Orange iteration and its matching apparel launch globally the same day.
