The style features designs from a safari print to a speckled coated midsole and different colors in celebration of Air Max 95.
In 2006, Nike released this style that was a huge hit with the ladies. They are mainly red sneakers with white soles, shoelaces, and tongue. This is one of the few Air Max 95s that you will see with so much red as the main color.
Every year there is a sneaker design where all the proceeds from its sales go directly to Doernbecher Children’s Hospital in Portland. What makes the shoes even more special is the fact that they are designed by the kids that are already receiving treatments at the hospital.
The Mike Armstrong x Nike Air Max 95 Doernbecher released in 2007 is one of the most popular models because it was a patriotic design in honor to Mike’s brother who was oversees serving in Iraq at that time. The sneakers are mainly blue, and the patterned design at the bottom is a mix of red and white squares.
7. University Red
In 2019 another pair of red Air Max’s hit the market during the collaboration with Supreme. The sneakers were crafted in Italy and they are made of the best leather material found in Italy. The price tag on this model is a lot higher because of the leather, but the higher price didn’t matter to Air Max fans because they sold out almost instantly when they were released.
8. Animal Pack
This is a fun safari-inspired design where 6 different materials from pony fur were used. There are leopard spots, zebra stripes, and even a vibrant pink of a flamingo featured on the sneakers.
Animal Pack was launched in 2018 and it definitely makes people look twice when they notice the fur material mixed with distinct prints in one shoe.
