Nike named its Tour Yellow shade in honor of the Tour de France general classification leader jersey. It became synonymous with Lance Armstrong’s amazing comeback from cancer and subsequent domination of the sport of cycling, over 80 million (!) LIVESTRONG bracelets increasing awareness as they sparked a global fad. Lance’s seven consecutive Tour victories remains one of the great achievements in the history of modern sport, so how impressive is it to consistently churn out hit after hit for over sixteen years in a row?! The Nike Air Max 95 in its OG ‘grey-dient’ look could be a dictionary exemplar for the word ‘impeccable’, this new Tour Yellow edition a twist on the ever popular bright yellow ‘Neon’ edition. The Neons have been retroed a few times over the past several years and sold out each time, so act fast if you want to grab a pair of these Air Max 95s from Nike Sportswear spots like Extra Butter, or go ahead and get yours right now on eBay.

I already nicknamed these "the batmans", got me a vintage black with yellow batman logo teeshirt to go with these. definitely a killa combo. ...good shoe!
I really love this colorway even more so than than the Neons but I'm now hesitant to get them because of the quality on these. My cousin recently bought the blue spark colorway and was really disappointed in the quality. The sole was coming off the front of the toebox.
Got them yesterday and the quality was awful the phylon on the midsole hadn't even been molded properly and their was a chunk missing between the side and heel air sole compartments among other flaws. Yellow paint all over the outside of the air sole unit and glue all over the grey and 3m pannel.not happy considering they cost about 220. Sent them back immediately. Did reorder and awaiting my new pair hopefully this will be an isolated incident.
