Nike Sportswear Korea celebrates season transitioning with the Air Max 95 “Pollen Rise”. Here are a full look and release date of the spring-ready sneaker.

Air Max 95 “Pollen Rise”

Inspired by Seoul’s famed forsythia flowers, this special Air Max features interchangeable patches. That means you can place them anywhere you want on the Velcro upper.

The AM 95 “Pollen Rise” was created to celebrate the long-awaited end of winter, which also means the beginning of sunny days. The pair comes with an unusual but “cool” design featuring a clean white Velcro construction.

Delivered in a cartoon-style aesthetic, the sneaker features a white and black upper. Orange and yellow sparks are here to add an extra vibrance to the sneaker.

The design simplicity of the AM95 “Pollen Rise” provides a perfect blank canvas, ideal for the customization.


You can customize your sneaker with removable Velcro accents. A gigantic forsythia-equipped Swoosh, a medium and small Swoosh and an oval-shaped Nike Air Max badge are at your disposal.

The velcro patches will be delivered in different shades including blue, orange, yellow, green and black.

The colour code is inspired by the Forsythia, a very popular tree in Seoul.

Release Date of the Sneaker

Celebrating the AM95 25th anniversary and the beginning of the Spring season, the Nike Air Max 95 “Pollen Rise” will release exclusively on Nike SNKRS Korea on March 21. The sneaker will be priced at $172 USD.

Although the sneaker is exclusive to Korea, you might be able to cop a pair for resale on websites like Stockx or Grailed. But, you can expect to pay a little more than the retail price and have shipping costs, depending on your location.

In the meantime, the Nike Air Max Triax 96 receives a Camo makeover.
