The NIKE AIR MAX 95 PLATINUM PACK includes a duo of colourways inspired by the practically un-oxidisable metallic element.
Originally, a 20th wedding anniversary gift was china, but more recently it has become PLATINUM and although the AIR MAX 95 isn’t celebrating two decades of marital bliss, NIKE have employed the 78th element as inspiration. The men’s colourway sports a silver upper with an all-over hand-drawn and laser-etched filigree pattern. A white lining, laces and midsole keeps things clean, whilst an icy outsole ties in nicely with the PLATINUM colouring. The finishing touch comes in the form of Pt (element) and 950 (purity) hallmarks on the heel, similar to those you would normally see on PLATINUM jewellery. The women’s version goes in a different direction by adding black paneling across the top of the upper, featuring textured sections that resemble the various textures of raw platinum. The black continues onto the lining, logos and outsole to tie everything together, whilst a white midsole adds some contrast. Anniversaries are nothing new in this industry, but there is no denying that NIKE is doing a sterling job with this one.
Both pairs from the NIKE AIR MAX 95 PLATINUM PACK are available now via their respective banners below.
