The Air Max 95 is about to turn eighteen next year but we’ve been treated to a couple revisions in 2012, one of which is currently setting Japan ablaze. The Nike Air Max+ 95 BB is off to a strong start thanks to collaborations with two of Tokyo’s top sneaker boutiques, one of whom even went so far as to create a special display for all of Nike Sportswear’s Air Max classics in honor of their BBs. atmos‘ new Air Max+ 95 BB headlines a group that includes the ‘What the Max’ Fuse set in addition to new 95 No-Sews and AM90 Hyperfuses. One of the more intriguing elements therein compares the modern full-length Max Air cushion that debuted in 2009 to the original encapsulated airbag hidden away on pre-Visible Air drops like the Tailwind. It’s crazy to see how far Nike has come in two decades in just those two frames, then zoom out and see even more of this incredible journey on display (and you can even buy them!). Check it out in greater detail below, let us know how this compares to the most impressive in-store display you’ve seen and stick with Sneaker News for more insights on the Japanese sneakerhead scene.
