Original Story (02/01/21): In 2018, Coral Studios and Nike teamed up on an Air Max 95 collaboration to raise awareness for the Great Barrier Reef Foundation. As the first collaboration was available in limited quantities, the two are now reuniting for a second Air Max 95 collaboration as “a love letter to supporters who were unable to purchase the first version,” describes Coral Studios co-founder Ismaila Traore.
The color scheme is still consistent with its Great Barrier Reef inspiration, featuring the same bright orange laces and bold blue color-blocking. However, diverging from the layout of the initial pair, the upcoming release features double black overlays on the bottom that transition to a brighter shade of blue than the navy we saw three years ago. The redesign also went into the shoe’s leather construction, replacing the original suede, which sits on a blue mesh base. Mini coral swooshes decorate the leather heel, and below, black midsoles and outsoles surrounding teal Air Max cushioning units finish the shoe. The collaboration comes sustainably-packaged in a foldable, recyclable box.
The Coral Studios x Nike Air Max 95 is slated for a Spring 2021 release. Check out the collaboration below and stay tuned to Modern Notoriety for more updates on its release.
