The year 1995 was a great one. For starters…
1. The Nike Air Max 95 debuted. With visible Air Max in the heel and forefoot, stylish lines, and bold color options, these were a top choice for sneaker enthusiasts and casual wearers alike, and nearly 20 years later is still a major people pleaser. The version you see below comes in a blue and grey colorway, and if you look closely, you’ll notice the neon green and blue zigzag pattern on the top-most wavy overlay on the upper.
2. Coolio’s “Gangsta’s Paradise” was the #1 song on the Billboard charts. Still a must-have on iPhones today, this song went on to win a Grammy award, among others. Check out the music video (featuring a young Michelle Pfeiffer) below.
3. Pixar’s Toy Story came out in theaters, and as the first full-length computer animated film, pretty much changed the way kids watched movies from then on. We are all still secretly a little bit scared of our toys from the way Woody and Buzz got back at Sid.
4. Windows ’95 anyone? Oh yes. And a rich Bill Gates,too.
