Nike Sportswear’s retro approach of ‘Frankenstein-ing’ the new with the old has been one of the hot-button sneaker topics lately. Some have garnered a surprising amount of praise, like the Nike Huarache Free 2012 and the Nike Huarache Basketball 2012, but others, like the upcoming Air Max Tailwind 96-12, are still up for debate. Taking the classic silhouette of the 1996 Air Max Tailwind with the newly designed Tailwind Max Air unit, the Air Max Tailwind 96-12 will arrive in Summer 2012 and will certainly conjure up pleasant memories of the past, or remind us that a classic has been unnecessarily changed. Check out all three (plus two GS sizes) below and let us know what you think.

I'm effin pissed!!! Why did they have to put that new god awful sole on this classic. I've been waiting for this shoe to be retroed since 07 and I refuse to cop this janky ass crap!!! We want the OG air max tailwind sole. If it ain't broke, don't try to fix it Nike!!

Ehhhh... Too much going in the design. I like the 2012 Tailwinds better.

The 96 Tailwinds are quite stunning in it's original design though. But I agree, Nike is just doing WAY too much with these old school/new school frankenstein experiments.
