    To me, these were some of the best Air Maxes (and Nikes in general) ever released and I think they all came out in like a year & a half timeframe. Aside from the 1st ones, I don't think Nike retroed any of these, did they? Either way, it's about time. So many great colorways but I'm sure they'd get botched.

    Stop.

    OP, I agree.  We need all of these.  The only thing that worries me about a retro is how slim Nike would make the air unit.

    :lol: at the first reply. Tailwinds have been done to death. I agree about 98's and a proper release of 96's. Shame it's never been done.

    Maaaaaaaaaaaan,

    I had a pair when I was 11 years old in elementary school. I beat them things to the ground. The little silver pieces along the sides started peeling off and everything.


    I'd scoop up some pairs!

    Here are better pics


    Some resemblance to the OG hyper blues but don't think these are meant to be retros of them.

    Maybe the AM Plus needs its own topic...

    These are nice, don't get me wrong.  However, I've wanted the OG hyper blues for so long... oh so long.  Hopefully they'll roll out more cw's in the near future.
