As chunkier, retro-inspired running silhouettes continue to enjoy their moment in the sun, Nike strikes while the iron is hot to retro the Air Max Triax 96.
For the first time, a cult classic is emerging from the vault 23 years later. Featuring the same iconic shape, materials, and visible Air unit, this retro Air Max Triax 96 has all the simple details that runners fell in love with back in 1996. Recognizable for its round laces, mesh tongue, and leather swoosh tab on the mesh toe box, the AM Triax 96 also stands out amongst the era’s Air Max releases for its slighter, more proportionate visible Air unit—in the mid-90s, oversized and full-length Air Max were trending. Still, for a silhouette with a smaller Air unit, the AM Triax 96 has an outsized impact for the comfort and style many remember.
The Air Max Triax 96 is now available in two OG colorways, University Red and Varsity Royal, online and in-store at West NYC, located at 147 West 72nd Street between Amsterdam and Columbus Avenues on the Upper West Side.
