The Air Max 96’s most defining feature is its fierce, jagged upper. Here, that upper is done up in a regal violet tone, one that’s quickly embellished with a wealth of white and black overlays. Black is used on the mudguards, toe caps, horizontal midfoot overlays, heels and eyestays, while the vertical midfoot overlay, Swoosh, second heel piece and tongue all combine white and black for a yin-yang look. Further branding is served up by a small white eyestay Swoosh on the lateral side and an Air Max hit on the tongue, while down below black midsoles with purple Air Max cushioning units finalize the style.
If you’re interested in copping a pair of the Nike Air Max 96 “Persian Violet,” it’s available now via Nike GB. The MSRP is set at $160 USD.
