THIS NIKE AIR MAX 95 IS COVERED WITH JAPANESE SCALES

From cherry blossoms to Mt. Fuji, the Nike Air Max 95 silhouette has been influenced by Japan in many ways over the years. In fact, the model is very popular in the Far East sneaker scene, and soon another pair will be added to the list of must-haves.

Material and color combinations give it the look of a modern classic

Even though this Nike Air Max 95 looks like a modern new colorway, it has a detail that makes it look like it has something to do with the Far East. A pattern that looks like fish scales is on the heel stripe and the part of the sole that shows at the middle of the foot. This type of tapestry is often used in Japanese clothing. Also, the upper is made of a mix of leather, suede, and textured leather, while the tongue is made of an unusual tumbled leather.

Summary

The Nike Air Max 95 has been paired with other brands before, but never in such an interesting and tasteful way as this. The Japanese influence on the design of this model has always worked well, and influences from custom sneakers in Japan pushes the creativity on display here even further.
