Nike’s retro reissue of the Air Max 96 II is finally here, answering the calls of many Air Max heads for the return of a beloved model. This week, we have an early look the new “First Use” pair for the upcoming collection, coming soon.

This year Nike is celebrating 50 years of its iconic Swoosh logo, which was first used by the brand back in 1971, created by graphic designer Carolyn Davidson for the brand. Half a century later, the Swoosh can be found on sneakers and apparel on nearly every continent, and across every country in the world. So, to celebrate, Nike has created the “First Use” collection, a series of classic sneakers recrafted with limited-edition color schemes, highlighting the Swoosh logo that they all bear in some shape or form. This week, we have an early look at the Air Max 96 II’s upcoming “First Use” look, adding upscale elements to the vintage running shoe as well as a striking green and black colorway. Overlays come in shaggy suede, while plenty of 3M reflective accents complete the look.


Nike’s latest colorway of the retro Air Max 96 II sneaker has not yet been announced for release, though they are expected to launch sometime in the coming weeks. Joining the upcoming “First Use” collection, the green and black color scheme will be available from both Nike and select retailers, with a price tag of $160.
