    Air Max 95

    At the beginning of the 90s, the rising fame of Michael Jordan had made Nike’s basketball sneakers incredibly popular. With the basketball division doing well, Nike focused its attention on reinvigorating its running shoes. Aiming to get a new perspective on runner design, Nike brought in shoe designer Sergio Lozano, who’d been working for four years on various sporting and ACG projects. Nike wanted to build a shoe that offered something completely original. This grand ambition is what led to the creation of the Nike Air Max 95.

    The 95 took the well-known Air Max line in a daring creative direction that was inspired by the unlikeliest of things: the rainy Oregon weather. As Lozano contemplated the lake on the campus of Nike’s Worldwide Headquarters in Beaverton, Oregon, he looked at the trees on the opposite bank. With the rain coming down, his imagination began to picture the earth being eroded away. It was then that the idea came to him: what if the ideal shoe was buried in the earth and gradually uncovered as the rain washed away strips of mud from around it?

    Lozano produced a quick sketch based on the idea. It showed a layered shoe that would go on to form the Air Max 95’s aesthetic, which resembled the flowing striated formations revealed by thousands of years of erosion in the rock faces of the Grand Canyon. This initial concept would go on to form the foundation of the first Nike Air Max 95, released in the Neon colorway. It featured a series of gray layers similar to those in the original drawing that faded from dark at the bottom to lighter at the top. Together with the introduction of the unconventional black midsole, this color gradient concealed signs of mud and general wear. These dark shades were offset by the addition of Nike’s bright signature Volt shade. This vivid yellow-green tone was a reference to the race kit, which has since been used as a heritage color scheme on many other Nike designs.

    Although Lozano built the Air Max 95 as a running shoe first and foremost, he also sought to reflect human anatomy in its design. The panels on the upper represented bands of muscle; the nylon eyelets extended out of vertical bands on the shoe’s flanks to act as the ribcage; while the midsole and heel were the vertebrae.

    The Nike Air Max 95 further aided runners by providing mesh for breathability over the lace guard alongside the very first forefoot visible air, which provided increased cushioning across the bed of the foot. Then there were the 3M Scotchlite reflective elements on the upper for extra flair, as well as visibility. Lozano was so confident in the individuality of Nike’s Air Max technology and the strength of the AM95’s aesthetic that he left the iconic swoosh off the shoe in the prototype phase. It was only reintroduced after Nike’s initial feedback in the form of a small swoosh positioned toward the back of the outer to keep the main upper neat and refined.

    Culturally, the 95s bold aesthetic was a success. On its release in 1995, the shoe was rebellious and against the status quo, which made it a favorite within youth culture. Hugely popular across Europe, Australia, and Japan, it was also adopted by well-known music artists in the United States. The Air Max 95 combined avant-garde design with excellent performance to establish Nike as footwear pioneers in the 90s, bringing about their glorious future of continuous innovation.
