Kim Jones x Nike Air Max 95
The British designer at the head of Dior Men and recently appointed Artistic Director of the Fendi women’s collections, Kim JONES, is relaunching his partnership with American giant Nike. The new collaboration is based on the Air Max 95 silhouette, available in two colorways.
The announcement of the upcoming Nike Air Max 95 revisited by Kim Jones was leaked earlier this year. Today, the serious account @J23app presents images of the first colorway « Black/Total Orange » resulting from this collaboration. The second colorway should be « Black/Volt », pending confirmation by one of the partners…
According to the latest visuals, the « Black/Total Orange » shoe consists of an upper combining several materials. We find black mesh with translucent overlays at the base of the orange and black fabric laces loops, textured white nylon for the toe and the low overlay joining the midsole, and finely treated grey suede for the cascading overlays. These last inserts are adorned with full-length black « morse code » prints. The name Kim Jones appears on the side heel, below the embroidered black Swoosh. The black color applied to the tongue, laces, insole and inner lining finalize the look and highlights the elements dressed in orange. The whole is based on a white midsole with bright orange-tinted Air windows combined with a full-length icy tranlucent rubber outsole.
The Kim Jones x Nike Air Max 95 duo is expected to arrive at selected retailers and on Nike.com during 2021. More details to come, stay tuned !
