Often referred to as the 110 for its £110 price tag by its original wearers, the Air Max 95 trainer has played a key role in the UK’s street culture over the last 25 years. Liverpool in particular in the North West may have flown the 3 stripes flag for adidas throughout the 1980s as casual fever was sweeping the nation, but the mid 90s was all about Air Max. Local sportswear retailers like Wade Smith started switching it up from Trimm Trabs to Tailwinds as trackies & trainers became a key look across the streets of Merseyside. To this day the Nike Air Max 95 still has a massive connection with the city.SHOP AM95 GREEDY
The Sergio Lozano design drew inspiration from human anatomy and featured a rib cage & muscle fibres’ inspired upper with a dual Air cushioning sole unit.
