The Nike Air Max 96 II is one of the brand’s less-heralded silhouettes to feature revolutionary visible Air cushioning, but it’s gained a cult-like following since debuting 26 years ago. Its first-time “proper” return for its 25th anniversary helped the model garner newfound attention, which has compelled the Swoosh to outfit it in handfuls of non-original, but stylish ensembles. Case in point?: A predominantly “Anthracite/Black” option accompanied by “University Gold” flair, resulting in a classic Batman-reminiscent arrangement.

Constructed with a mix of reinforced mesh and synthetic tumbled leather, the pair’s upper is undeniably rooted in the “busy,” technical aesthetic that dominated performance-running shoes between the turn of the 21st century. Much of the aforementioned materials appears clad in pitch-dark tones, which allows for the “University Gold” that animates branding at the mid-foot and detailing on the tongue to steal the spotlight. Reflective strips across the spine further help the Air Max-cushioned silhouette make a statement even in suboptimal lighting conditions. Down below, sole units indulge in the medley of hues seen across the upper, with the famed visible Airbags opting for a stealthy look appropriate of Gotham’s “Dark Knight.”

Enjoy official images of the sneakers here below, and anticipate a Nike.com release date soon.

Elsewhere under the NIKE, Inc. umbrella, the Air Jordan 5 “Racer Blue” is set to launch on February 12th.
