Nike Lunar Epic Flyknit
The Lunar Epic Flyknit hasn’t been around for long. It has earned a place among classic Nike shoes though.

What it did do, however, was show the style standing on its own rather than as another part of a Nike Lunar Epic Flyknit is a shoe based on the combination of 2 of Nike’s trademark technologies; Flyknit and Lunarlon. Precision-laseredLunarlon midsole make it one of the most comfortable and in-demand sneakers in the market. Moreover, the availability of Nike Lunar Epic Flyknit in a vast range of colors further increases its appeal.
Nike SB KostonHyperfeel 3
Another of the most popular of Nike’s sockfit releases is the Nike SB KostonHyperfeel 3. It was an innovation by the manufacturers that combined elements of the sockfit style with a more traditional lowtop sneaker look. No surprises then that it received a big response from consumers. The dynamic fit collar looked a bit funny to begin with but actually provides extra support to the user’s ankle. Support aside, the sockfit quickly found a place in streetwear as people realized what you could and couldn’t wear with them. As per the structure of the shoe, the part where it differs from the regular cupsoles is that it doesn’t have a midsole. Rather, Hyperfeel construction is the base here.

A combined effort of Kim Jones and NikeLab has created a re-imaged and updated version of 1995 Nike Air Zoom. A blend of comfort, style, and durability is what makes it different from other traditional shoes out there. The shape slightly tweaks the Air Zoom from ’95. The construction looks modern without losing out on the style that they started off with. If you’re looking for a throwback that can stand on more than just nostalgia, this is the one.
Nike Air Max 2016
2016 may not have been the peak of Air Max popularity but it was a strong year for the line. Bar a few releases and what turned out to be a generally poor financial year for Nike’s running shoes, their Air Max releases were pretty decent overall. The 2016 Air Max isn’t the most innovative of Nike’s releases but it’s not supposed to be. They’re a clean, classic release that never really gets old.
Atmos x Nike Air Max 1 Safari
2 streetwear heavyweights, Atmos and Nike, created a unique design with the Air Max 1 Safari. The first time the 2 companies worked together was back in 2002 with the original Safari release. After the success of the previous collaboration as well as Nike and Atmos holding a place at the top of the streetwear pyramid for the intervening 15 years, a reprised version seemed like a no brainer. deserves a place in the top 5 classic Nike shoes due to its comfort, quality and style.
