Nike Adorns The Air Max 95 With Platinum To Celebrate Its 20th Anniversary

Two of the latest iterations of the Nike Air Max 95 have received the platinum-treatment in commemoration of the 20 year anniversary celebration of the running shoes. It has been 2 decades since these technologically advanced running shoes made their debut back in 1995, which makes these two upcoming renditions special edition pairs. Best of all, Nike is giving both all sneakerheads an equal opportunity to celebrate because these “Platinum” Air Max 95 colorways will be making their way to retailers on of 2015’s upcoming Nike release dates in both men’s and women’s sizes.

In modern times, married couples share platinum gifts with each other in celebration of their 20th wedding anniversary. Of course, instead of 20 years of matrimony, Nike Sportswear is celebrating two decades of innovation that has been leading the running shoes industry. Nike has utilized the symbolic gray-white hue of the 78th element to add a dash of brilliance to these special Air Max 95 versions for men and women.

The back heels also sport an engraved “PT,” which is the symbol for Platinum, and “950,” which is the metal’s highest purity level. The women’s iteration has been dressed up in the signature gradient theme of the Air Max 95, while the color scheme and textures are heavily inspired by platinum.

While they will hit the shelves around the world on August 13th, they will only be available at select Nike retailers, and those in North America will have to wait until September 3rd to get their hands on it.
