Many runner fans were ecstatic to hear about these particular Air max's making a return. The Air Max 95 "Blue Slate" is a prized colorway of a classic sneaker, so it only makes sense that its return would create serious buzz. Nike's "Blue Slate" Air Max 95 has made a triumphant return to retail shelves this season from Nike Sportswear. The nickname "Slate" comes from entirely the colorway, which is White/New Green-Blue Slate-Black. The retro running shoe features white uppers and a black outsole. Blue accents are seen on areas such as the lace holders and mid-panel. While these retro running shoes were originally released back in 2005 the Air Max 95 "Slates" the new released version is different than the last time we saw these, as black has replaced navy on the top layer, and the lower two rows are the same shade of blue, instead of being slightly different.
