What would a Nike retro be without some deviations from the original materials that place the sneakers in a new context?
The Nike Air Max Sensation, a Chris Webber basketball shoe from 1995, is the latest model to make its return with a different material selection. This time around the shoe rearranges the synthetic nubuck of the upper and introduces a black faux crocodile skin as well. This reptilian take on the model is offered in black and gym red.
The Nike Air Max Sensation here isn't available in the U.S. yet, but it's available via Afew in Germany for anyone who can't wait.
