2. Air Max 90

The Air Max 90 started out as a running shoe when it first released in 1987, but has transformed over time into a retro sneaker with lots of street appeal – and a look that shoe collectors love. Even as the design and color combinations change, one thing remains the same: the Nike Air Max 90 styles stay true to their roots as a top sneaker of the past and the future.

3. Air Max 95

The Air Max 95 was based on the human anatomy. The midsole represents the spine, the graduated panels are the muscle fibers, the lace loops and straps are the ribs and the mesh by the lace loops is the skin. The Nike Air Max 95 only had the Nike swoosh in two locations, one at the heel of the 95 and the other on the back. First released in 1995, the Nike Air Max 95 came out in huge range of eye-catching colors, and the whole series is still very successful.
