I was recently digging through one of the places I store my shoes and came across these gems. The Air Max 96 was sandwiched between two icons, the Max 95 and Max 97. But I feel it holds its own. It just gets me thinking how the 96 is similar to many overlooked shoes that didn't have a big marketing push or retro program. And it's not coveted by the masses but there's truly no reason why is shouldn't be. Great colourways, heel to toe air, tech and design aspects combined with a great shape and profile. It gets me thinking about many other impressive runners that go unmentioned due to the attention the 90, 95, and 97 receive. Plus it's great for running, jumping fences, and all sorts of other activities involving debauchery.
