Nike Sportswear takes the nike air max 1 on safari this fall, with three exotic animal prints on the classic silhouette exclusively in Gradeschool sizing. But there’s more to these animal prints than just the pattern, as each of the leopard, tiger, and zebra prints feature a faux fur upper to extend their wild look. Continuing the animal theme is a paw print Nike logo on each tongue and insole. Look closely at the sole, and you’ll see that it’s been modified with more foam for a lighter and softer ride for smaller feet.
Nike updates the nike air max 95 in this silhouette with contemporary materials in the “Night Silver” colorway. The upper utilizes a repeating zig-zag pattern printed onto a woven JCRD jacquard material, replete with Flywire support, white lining, laces and tongue with Air Max branding. A speckled white midsole with neon green air pockets provide ample cushioning, while the orange Swoosh on the ankle provides a hit of contrasting color to finish.
Size? is known to get their hands on some of Nike’s retro models before anyone else. That was the case for the Nike Air Huarache before it reached mainstream success over the past year and a half, and the same goes for the likes of the Nike Air Max 93 and now the nike air max 94. The silhouette is often looked over in the Air Max lineage as the Air Max 95 blew it out of the water thanks to a human anatomy inspiration and multiple visible air capsules that had a pension for vibrance. Here Size? takes a lifestyle approach to the vintage runner thanks to a monochromatic soft suede upper in either grey or khaki while mesh adds a little breathability on the toebox. Contrasting speckled midsoles showcase the vibrant accents of either Volt or Bright Crimson for a unique look.
Nike continues to push forward into the colder climate, taking the nike air max 90 along for the ride with it. Styled for durability and warmth, the AM90 Mid takes on a funky new form here, covered near completely in a subtle polka dot print and accented with black colour blocking. A touch of night silver adds that necessary low-visibility shine, while additional hits of Sports Blue bring the classic vibes.
