12695482, You know they did a sort of updated 96?

If I remember correctly it had the 360 unit in the heel only. They did the black/white/concord color from the OGs, not sure about the obsidian/green ones. I had the latter in OGs. I don't know, I thought they were pretty poorly engineered. Like they knocked you forward into the toe box and it wasn't wide enough. I thought the 97s had a really shitty fit, too, though they looked cooler and it was fixed in the spinoffs (98s, Air Max Deluxe, etc)

I am sure it is just a matter of time before they do the OG 96s and 96 B though. I thought the 96 B (I think that's what it was called) had cleaner colors.

Also to my knowledge they haven't retroed the Air Max 99, which I would love to add to my list of stuff I wish would come back. I bought some OG pairs but they were a disaster, Polyurethane everywhere. DS but clearly not suitable for wear; some stuff just didnt hold up well


there was also a B version
