Land of the Rising Sun.
Japan always seems to get the best releases. With its plethora of unbelievable native brands, incredible streetwear culture and undying love for sneakers, this nation is at heart of everything to do with sneakers. Now, Nike have created the Nike Air Max 95 ‘Mt. Fuji’ and it is every bit as good as you would expect.
Starting from the bottom, the midsole is adorned with a slate grey and contrasted by a crisp white speckle to make it really stand out. If you are a lover of sneakers, you will always appreciate the speckled sole.
Moving up, we have the sail-hued upper. Coming in a ripstop material, this adds a trail vibe that you do not often see on an Air Max 95. What truly sets this sneaker apart is the bold Just Do It insignia that wraps around the medial and lateral sides.
Rounded off with Japanese characters and red circle on the marbled sole unit, this sneaker is easy to fall in love with. So here’s the heartbreaking bit, it is a Japanese exclusive for the time being.
So let’s all pray together to the gods of sneakers that the Nike Air Max 95 ‘Mt. Fuji’ creps launch on these shores soon.
