The Air Max 95 didn’t just get excitable write-ups in style bibles of the time like The Face and Boon—it was praised far beyond the cool kid sector. Seeing as it was a running shoe, the performance reviews were all important and Runner’s World wrote, Although still relatively beefy, the latest Air Max provides a much more responsive ride than previous models did.” Months after that positive review, Time magazine’s Best of 1995: Products feature in a December 1995 edition declared the Air Max 95 one of the year’s finest athletic designs.
