The ongoing celebration of the history of Air Max continues with this surprising collaborative release between Nike and Japan’s mita sneakers. Somewhat in conjunction with the release of the Japan-exclusive Air Max Chronicle magazine, mita sneakers has created a special rendition of the original Air Max 95 ‘Neon’ using a black inner lining and tongue, a special AIR MAX insole that throws back to the OG boxes, and a sick UENO embroidery on the inner lining of the shoe (something we saw with the earlier City Attack and Air Force 1 releases done by mita). The Air Max 95 is considered to be the axis of the ‘cult Air Max’ sneaker, as mita details the journey of Air Max and this model in particular in the Air Max Chronicle issue, but it all culminates tomorrow with this incredible release. A detailed gallery is just below, so take a look and let us know what you think about the subtle changes made for this collaborative project.

I like! Such a small change, but the overall effect is totally different. Definite cop if I could find a pair, but I doubt that will happen.
