nike’s air max 95, designed by sergio lozano in 1995, is one of the company’s most iconic and sought after sneakers of all time. now, twenty years after their original launch, nike has brought the shoes back. creative agency ogilvy & mather hong kong saw the opportunity to tap a nostalgic vein with the re-release, and created ‘air max 95 collectables’, a limited-edition of trading cards illustrated by local hong kong artists.

artists considered hong kong’s, architecture, technology, food, entertainment, music, art, transportation and gaming 

 

 

 

each design incorporates key hong kong styles and ideas reflecting the last two decades, and were released alongside the sneakers by means of vending machines in store-fronts. a small amount of holographic cards were created, allowing those lucky enough to get one exclusive access to low-production editions or 95s. ultra rare metallic nike iD cards give winners the chance to fully customize their own pair of the shoes
