When the Nike Air Max 95 was released in 1995, it was not the hit that sneaker designer Sergio Lozano thought it would be. It was considered a little ahead of its time, which could be the cause of Nike fans and sneaker seekers remaining largely indifferent to them. That is, well, until they weren’t. Instead of being tossed away as a failure, the Air Max 95 eventually piqued the curiosity of those who sought something new. Through the years, it became a cult classic, set apart from the rest of Nike’s Air Max models for its design that has been inspired by human anatomy, and originally in a tonal gray colorway to tone down the dirt that the kicks will accumulate.
More than 20 years later, the Air Max 95 has been released in a myriad of colorways and has cultivated the status of being among the most famous of Nike’s Air Max releases. The world also saw the launch of the Nike Air Max 95 LX for women, an updated version of the original 95s especially made for female sneakerheads.

The cushioning system includes two Air pads on the heel and the forefoot, and the shoes come with mesh uppers to keep your feet happy and fresh.

There’s no question that we’re dealing with great shoes, but the Air Max 95 LX is not for everyone. It often runs smaller, even for women’s shoes, and aren’t the most ideal for wide feet. The shoes also have a slightly more expensive price than other shoes Nike has to offer.
