Who wouldn’t want Nike to Retro all of it’s 90’s sneakers in their original forms? One can wear gems like the above Air Max Tailwind ’96 without fear of a complete midsole destruction, but there’s an understandable hesitation with shoes like the Air Max Tailwind 96 12, which uses the latest Tailwind midsole cushioning. These mix-ups of old and new are something you need to get used to because it’s not stopping here, so if you’ve been waiting for the return of the ’96 edition of the Tailwinds, the ’96 12′ is the best you’re gonna get! Check out the new Black/Gym Red colorway below and head to Eastbay if you’re warming up to the new ‘hybrid’ output.
