Learn Sneaker Reselling

Hello, SFS readers! Up for discussion today is the Nike Air Max 95 in the “OG Neon” colorway. They will be releasing Thursday, December 17th for $170 on Nike amongst other retailers. Surely a fan favorite and a release to make some money on.

Feel free to skip to Release Info and Conclusion now to get the need to know details for this release.

A Closer Look

The silhouette’s original design was inspired by the human body, with the midsole representing the base of the spine while serving as the backbone of the design. Nylon eyelets stood in for ribs, while the upper’s layered panels and mesh symbolized muscle fibers and flesh. It was also the first Nike creation to feature a visible, forefoot Air bag. This historic colorway dresses the style in muted shades of black and light graphite, with bold accents of neon yellow highlighting the shoe’s groundbreaking innovation.

Conclusion and Resale Anticipation

To be frank this is one of my personal favorite Air Maxes of all time. Any model, any colorway, period. Any debut colorway of the first handful of Air Maxes like the 95 should be a shoe-in for the “best of all time” Air Max list. For the goodness of the sneaker community I hope these sell well and you see them on feet. Quite the special moment to see a 25 year old sneaker out in the streets. Last time we saw these was a mere 5 years ago, but it still feels like it’s been forever. Ideal scenario is to cop one to rock and one to resell! As you’ll see with the extensive list below, they’re hitting all the major foot stores so I think the double up is fully possible.
