Where the original pair’s side panels were dressed in nubuck, the new version opts instead for a rich leather. As mentioned above, shades are adjusted too: where the first pair’s two lowest overlays were dressed in black then navy, this pair goes double black before switching to a duo of rich blue shades higher up towards the lacing system. All of these pieces sit atop a sporty blue mesh base.
More black leather graces toeboxes and heels alike, with black also used on the neoprene tongue. A healthy splash of vibrance is then provided by way of orange eyelets, coral laces, a teal collar lining and a small coral swoosh towards the lateral heel. Down below, black midsoles and outsoles surround teal Air Max cushioning units to complete the look.
The shoes themselves aren’t the only thing that’s special: the box they come in is meant to be collapsed for ease of recycling. If you’d rather store your shoes in the box, that’s an option too thanks to yellow-tape covered adhesive strips that enable you to stick it together.
An official release date for Coral Studios’ second Air Max 95 has yet to be announced, but according to the group it’ll arrive on the Coral Studios webstore sometime this spring.
