Nearly 25 years since its debut, the Air Max 95 remains a fan-favourite amongst the storied Air Max lineup.

Released just as the market for running sneakers was cooling down, thanks to basketball kicks jumping to new heights, Sergio Lozano's design managed to recapture the magic of past Air Maxes by offering something provocative and never-before seen. Not only did the silhouette take inspiration from human anatomy with nods to ribs, vertebrae, muscles and skin, the AM95 also introduced the world to visible forefoot Air for the very first time. A mini Swoosh capped things off as a punctuation mark, and an instant classic was born — one that was quickly adopted on the streets of New York City and London, and one who's unapologetic aesthetic has made it a streetwear icon ever since.

Below we take a look back at some of our favourite Air Max 95s to hit shelves since the shoe's 1995 launch in the first part of our AM95 retrospective.
