Sandwiched between Tinker Hatfield’s 1987 Air Max debut and his ’90 Air Max III (better known ’round these parts as the immortal Air Max 90), it’s easy to see how 1989’s Air Max II might be overlooked. This model whose name changed to Nike Air Max Light to reflect its improvements over the AM1, is one that we’ve seen in a decent variety of builds from Nike Sportswear in recent years, though they’ve been conspicuously quiet in 2012. That changes with these new Size?-exclusive colorways, a couple of suede and mesh throwbacks set to release this Friday, August 24th and depicted in additional photos after the jump. Click through to see which palette better represents this pattern and let us know if you’ll grab one of the 500 pairs per design.
