After paying their respects to their audiences of the Far East for Lunar New Year, Nike is trucking along with their celebratory sneakers into the month of February in observance of Black History Month. For their Sportswear category, one of the members on this year’s commemorative roster includes this forthcoming rendition of the Air Max 95. Vibrant in nature, numerous in fabrications, this design is fittingly expressive of African textiles and street style of the 1990s era, and will even include co-branded mismatching lace shrouds that allow you to customize them with its accompanying Sharpie pen.
If you look closely at each layer of its base constructions, each overlay transitions in alternating fashion between materials of synthetic, canvas, and mesh, ultimately leading to its translucent plastic layer present towards the laces. Heavy cultural vibes are communicated through its lateral and medial paneling that asymmetrically place its multi-colored personality between each foot with the utilization of brighter hues of orange, red, purple, yellow, and teal reminiscent of traditional African garb. In addition, more accents emblematic of the annual festivities are echoed through its “BHM” branding debossed onto the tongues and printed atop the insoles. Grab a detailed look here below, and find these dropping on Nike.com and select retailers on February 19th for $180.
