The NIKE AIR MAX 96 II WMNS PURPLE DAWN follows up on the recent news of the model’s imminent return to the streets.
When the Air Max 96 first dropped in… ummm… 1996, it had its work cut out to follow the legacy of the previous year’s Air Max release: the seemingly immortal Air Max 95. Whilst any subsequent Air Max design would find that task a challenge, 1996 saw two Air Max designs drop, the latter of which we’re featuring here. The shoe actually looks stronger than ever now, with its suede and mesh layers and panels, and when it’s being presented in colourways as good as this Purple Dawn/Lemon Drop-Purple Pulse combination, it’s easy to see the appeal. We like this one a lot – perhaps our favourite colourway of the 96 II that we’ve seen to date.
The NIKE AIR MAX 96 II WMNS PURPLE DAWN is due to release on SATURDAY 17 JULY: click the banner below to check the releases at NIKE ahead of the drop.
