Nike Air Max 96 II “Black/University Gold” DH4756-001

The Nike Air Max 96 II is one of the brand’s lesser-heralded silhouettes to feature revolutionary visible Air cushioning, but it’s become a cult following since its debut 26 years ago. Its first “clean” comeback for its 25th anniversary helped the model gain new attention, leading the Swoosh to outfit it with unoriginal but stylish set grips. Example ? : A predominantly “Anthracite/Black” option accompanied by a touch of “University Gold”, resulting in a classic arrangement reminiscent of Batman.

Constructed with a mix of reinforced mesh and tumbled synthetic leather, the pair’s upper is undeniably rooted in the “busy” technical aesthetic that dominated performance running shoes at the turn of the 21st century. Much of the aforementioned materials appear dressed in dark tones, allowing the “University Gold” that animates the midfoot branding and tongue detailing to steal the show. Reflective stripes on the spine further help the Air Max cushioned silhouette stand out even in sub-optimal lighting conditions. Down below, the soles indulge in the mix of hues seen on the upper, with the famous visible airbags opting for a stealthy look appropriate for Gotham’s “Dark Knight.”
