One of the defining features of the Nike Air Max 95 is the gradient stripes that run down the sides of the shoe. That's why this new release from Nike is so shocking: it doesn't have the stripes. And that's ok, because they look great! The mesh and nubuck upper is solid obsidian save for the branding and the swoosh, which are black. The classic chunky sole is all black with obsidian contrasts on the bottom of the outsole. This is a different take on the '95, but one that can work in these waning winter months as well as when spring (hopefully) returns.
