Nike Sportswear isn’t shy to pull the retro trigger, but here’s a Nike Basketball design that first dropped 15 years ago, set to receive a tech-happy update come next year. The Nike Air Max Sensation 2011 is based on the Air Max Sensation that Chris Webber wore in 1995 as a member of the Washington Bullets. It’s got the unmistakable ‘aimax’ script made famous on that year’s immortal Air Max 95, but a quick glance at this pair’s sole reveals an update in the form of a basketball-specific Max Air 360 unit. The upper is also updated with carbon fiber and Torch mesh, making for one of the best Nike BB updates in quite some time.
