This week’s pick of the footwear comes from Nike, who have unveiled a new Air Max that’s catered for the summer days ahead.
The Nike Air Max 95 Ultra Premium BR is a reworking of the classic Air Max 95, with changes to the materials used on the iconic silhouette. Coming in two colourways, this shoe is constructed of a lightweight mesh that allows for breathability – the sort that will come in handy when the city streets get hot this summer.
Accented by suede overlays and a luxe leather toe cap, these two summery colourways are bright and cheerful, too, making them a perfect sneaker for a sunny day. The midsole features more distinctive Air details, as Nike add their signature touches to both the grey and the khaki editions of this soon-to-be released-Air Max.
For fans of the series, this is likely to be a must-buy as they rework a classic in a smart and practical way – not to mention how good that breathable mesh looks aesthetically. It brings an athletic, sporty look back to the Air Max which, despite it’s place in fashion and culture, is still first and foremost a comfortable and functional shoe. At this stage, though, there is no release date for the Nike Air Max 95 Ultra Premium BR, but due to their look and their breathability, expect them to be on shelves and on feet come the height of the summer.
