Nike’s Air Max 96 model will make its return to celebrate an anniversary of 20 years. Soon to release in the Air Max 96 and Air Max 96 II, you’ll notice a sole swap as the Air Max 95 Ultra takes the place of the original resting surface of its upper. The retro keeps things simple as each don a clean black/white color combination. During its original release, the Swoosh were testing the waters with larger Air Max units, which can explain the upgrade on its sole on the upcoming release. Nonetheless, fans of the original shouldn’t be disappointed with a more contemporary look.

You’ll be able to add the Nike Air Max 96 and Air Max 96 II to your personal collection now for $169 USD at select retailers such as Sneakernstuff.
