Fans of the Nike Air Max 96 waited over two decades to be treated to a retro until they found out that the shoe was missing a major original detail – the midsole and outsole unit had been swapped for that found on the Nike Air Max 95 SE for a slimmer more modern upgrade. Traditionalists cried foul while others chose to focus on the head-turning upper and original colorways that were returning to market.

The Nike Air Max 96 famously has two versions and today we get a look at a clean Black/White take on the Nike Air Max 96 II XX. This pair sports a premium leather and nubuck construction consisting up an all black upper while a white slimmed down midsole is contrasted through a murky black visible air unit. The colorway definitely works on the cult-classic running model, but is the inexplicable choice of an updated midsole and outsole unit going to interfere with your decision to grab a pair? Check out more detailed photos of the Nike Air Max 96 II XX “Black/White” after the break and grab your size right now from select shops like 1st OG.
