Editor’s Notes: Sean Wotherspoon, sneaker designer and co-founder of retailer Round Two, visited Nike’s Beaverton world HQ recently. As soon as he got back home to Richmond, Virginia, Wotherspoon posted a photo on Instagram thanking Nike for the invite.
The highlight of the post was a unreleased neon-augmented hybrid pair of Air VaporMax 95s. The sneaker features hits of Nike’s iconic volt colorway, with a bulky Air Max 95 upper attached to a black and volt Air VaporMax sole unit.
Fast forward to now and Nike has already released the sneaker for its United States-based customers, with the drop happening on August 16. Now the Swoosh has confirmed the release for Europe to be today, August 24, at a retail price of €225.
Nike has been riding the hybrid sneaker wave for a while now, with the Air Max 97 previously getting the VaporMax sole treatment. Now it looks like the Air Max 95 will be next.
