Back in 2018 the Nike team took a deep dive into their New York City market and came back with some interesting statistics related to cultural influence. Through extensive SNKRS app research, they gathered that the city’s Uptown region had possessed a noticeably high concentration of Dominican Republic natives. As a result, they wanted to find a method to somehow honor this community, and accomplished this through a specially designed Air Force 1 Low “De Lo Mio” which translates to “Close Friend” in English. As of today, we have just received word that the series will proceed thanks to a newly posted video that can currently be found on Nike SNKRS App which confirms that the tributes will continue this year through the Air Max 95. The same “University Red” and Sport Blue” tones are being utilized once again as nod to the Dominican Republic flag, but are placed more sparingly along the branded areas. In addition, electrified hits of neon volts upgrade its palette with more vibrant energy along the lace loops. Expect these AM 95s to release on Nike.com on May 1st, for $180 USD.
Nike SNKRS App released the Air Max 95 “De Lo Mio” on February 27th.
