Not everyone was convinced when first images surfaced online for the Nike Vapormax 95 Neon. It wasn’t the colourway that caused controversy rather the bizarre look of this sole-swapped silhouette. Had Nike finally taken it too far on their quest to combine the contemporary with the iconic?!

Well, you might be surprised as it turns out that the Vapormax 95 is seriously fuego. Who would have thought a Vapormax midsole could completely re-invent such a classic style?! Just take a look at these on foot images – it’s hard to argue that these aren’t a summer banger’!

The exact design of the conventional Air Max 95 Neon is maintained throughout the upper. That wavy construct features layers of premium suede with net mesh to the lace surround.

Right down to the eye-popping mini-Swoosh, everything remains the same.

Vapormax technology sits seamlessly underfoot in a blacked-out shade that compliments the upper perfectly. Sticky pods add a cosmic glow in the same volt colours as the upper.

For such a crazy hybrid, the Vapormax 95 Neon is surprisingly versatile. From cargo pants to black jeans and fleece shorts; is there anything these don’t look good with?!

Release of the Nike Air Vapormax 95 Neon is delayed across most UK stockists but they are available early via size?

Hit us up in the comments and let us know if you’d rock this unique silhouette. Is it another must-cop hybrid or are icons such as the Air Max 95 best left untouched?!
