In Nike Sportswear‘s Air Max cannon, few models are as exalted as the Air Max 95 “Neon” — a seminal Sergio Lozano design from 1995 that’s now serving as inspiration for a brand-new silhouette dubbed the Air Max 95 NDSTRKT “Neon.” Borrowing the colors and human anatomy-inspired build of its famous forefather, the NDSTRKT uses layered details, sturdy materials and design cues from Nike classics for a look that’s simultaneously fresh and familiar.
Uppers feature a black base made of tightly woven mesh and water-resistant synthetic textile. This is quickly overlaid by six exposed silver and volt fabric strips, which on the OG 95 would usually be present under a mesh sheath. Atop this textile assemblage arrives gray rubberized overlays, which rise up high on the heel and midfoot before dropping down towards the forefoot and toebox.
Branding is handled by green Swooshes towards the heel and a circular Air Max badge on the traditional white tongue. Laces are held in place by a gray throat overlay, and midsoles take on a classic “Neon” mixture of black EVA foam with bright yellow-green Air Max units. Outsoles with a winterized traction pattern round off the look.
The Nike Air Max 95 NDSTRKT “Neon” is set to release via Nike SNKRS Japan on November 29, and is priced at ¥24,200 JPY (approximately $233 USD). A US release date will likely follow in later months.
