The Limited Edition Nike “Air Max 95″ Tennis Classic = "And The O.G. Oscar Award Goes Too ..."

"In an interesting fusion, Nike brings the design elements of the iconic Air Max 95 to the Tennis Classic. Both materials and colors of the running shoe have been replicated on the low top tennis sneaker. The sneaker is now available from LTD."

CHRIS LIVE AKA SHAKER SAYS: In the annals of fly lace up lore, few sneakers are as treasured as the O.G. Nike "Air Max 95". Likewise, as Livestyle constantly endeavors to communicate a new and improved language of admiration of quality to our loyal followers, few things are as laudable around these hallowed parts as creative innovation. That having been well established, it is only right that I recognize the reimagined brilliance of the Limited Edition Nike “Air Max 95″ Tennis Classic.

Originally released in the very same famed neon green/grey colorway employed by this fusion model, the O.G. version quickly became a mid 1990's hustler style staple that worked best with a good Champion® sweatsuit and/or matching Sergio Tacchini© tracksuit (NOTE: Ralph Lauren Polo was complementary as H-E-Double-Hockey-Sticks too ... fuck it, these kicks looked pretty amazing with just about everything ... lol).

Whereas as design modifications to time-honored vintage kicks can often be disruptive, the Nike “Air Max 95″ Tennis Classic mash-up proves that, when truly thought out and NOT suffering from terminal gimmickery, these mergers can be magnificent. Add that to the fact that I have greatly outgrown the Summer standard Nike "Air Force One" and, in recent years, have returned to my Adidas "Stan Smith" hood heritage and Y.O.U. can see why a G like me is totally partial to this outstanding premium pair. Good shit!
