Air Max 95...
The Air Max 95 is probably on the top 10 list of every sneakerhead in the world. One of the main reasons for the Air Max 95's popularity throughout the years has to be the wide variety of colorways produced, over 150 models to date. The inspiration for the air max 95 came in the form of the human body......the midsole represents the spine, the graduated panels are the muscle fibers, the lace loops and straps are the ribs and the mesh by the lace loops is the skin. The Air Max 95 was also the first Nike shoe to have an Air Max heel which was compressed to different pressures. The air pressure ranges from a low 5PSI in the back of the heel to 25PSI directly underneith the heel to provide optimal cushioning.
This year Nike came back with the retro air max 95 "NEON" & "CHILI" colorways which were an instant hit and sold out immediately. In 2009 Nike will retro two more colorways, the "SAFETY ORANGE" & "FRESH WATER". No exact date yet on the 09 release but I will keep you posted if I hear anything.
