Although the snow may be falling and the winter winds may be cold, warmer days are ahead — and Nike is already looking forward to the spring with a new slate of releases, the latest of which to surface is this new women’s-only “Psychic Pink” Air Max 95 womens . A warm weather-ready combination of white and soft grey leathers appear on the upper’s anatomy-inspired panels, while a small hit of pink appears via a debossed Swoosh toward the heel. The tongue and throat add further to the tonal look, but the lower half offers pops of contrast, with the aforementioned “Psychic Pink” dispersed through the heel and forefoot Air Max cushioning units. These 95s for the ladies will release April 20th for $160 USD, so grab a detailed look and be sure to roll up to Nike.com or select Swoosh Brand stockists on release day if you want to secure your pair.
Nike’s Air Max 95 Ultra SE silhouette serves as a modernized take on the iconic 1995 heritage classic that was inspired by the natural structure of the human foot. Equipped with a seamless upper that still utilizes the multi-colored aesthetic on its racing stripes, the no-sew construction creates a much lighter ride. Its upper is also re-worked, as it rids itself of the somewhat bulky unit that comes on the normal 95s and takes inspiration from the Ultra Moire running sneaker. Now, the Swoosh brand has drawn up two summer-ready colorways of the 95 SE with one sporting a palette that is similar to that of the fan-favorite Air Max 95 “Neon”. The other iteration keeps things a bit more simple as it ushers in white and blue with beige mixed in for a touch of contrast. Both of these brand new Air Max offerings are available at retailers overseas the likes of JD Sports for £130.
Spring and summer weather calls for breathable, flexible shoes, and Nike’s new take on the Air Max 95, the Ultra Premium BR, offers a stripped-down take on the classic silhouette that’s ideal for the warmer months ahead. Featuring a lightweight mesh upper with suede overlays and a leather toe cap, the BR’s upper nods to the shoe’s heritage and anatomy-inspired design while removing layers for a streamlined aesthetic. The midsole detailing receives an update as well, as the 95’s regular midsole is swapped out for the lesser-know Air Max 96 iteration. The shoe’s look is completed with a classic Air Max patch on the tongue, and Nike detailing on the heel and outsole. There’s no official release date or pricing info for the Air Max 95 Ultra Premium BR yet, but look for them to arrive on Nike.com soon, and for more hybrid Air Max news take a look at Skepta’s upcoming Air Max BW/97.
