1996 Atlanta Olympics USA Nike Air Max Triax Returns

G-Roc

An Air Max classic returns in 2020.

Don't call it a comeback. But yeah, the USA Air Max Triax 96 is back!

This USA themed Air Max originally released to coincide with the 1996 Atlanta Olympics. I wonder if Nike is also going to drop the Air Force 1?! Covid ruined everyone's 2020 plans and I'm sure this Air Max is back because the Olympic games that was scheduled for Summer 2020.

The good news is you don't have to hunt for OGs anymore because a fresh retro is available on Nike.com.

What other shoe do you feel needs to retro?

Nice selection. Funny you posted these because I literally pulled my pair out of storage today! This pair and the white colorway.

Thanks, I like the white pair as well G-Roc as a Falcons home colorway, but I know Vick wore the black pair on the field so I want those the most. Nike was supposed to retro them back in 2015, I guess they were scrapped. I honestly want an OG pair but it’s hard to find a size 12 DS. I’ll settle for a retro at this point, hopefully it happens soon.

I totally understand about the colors. Just funny timing to read your comment when I just pulled my pairs out.

I'm surprised they didn't retro because they ended up re-releasing the Zoom Vick II after all the dog controversy. Maybe those didn't sell well because a lot of pairs ended up in outlets and decided it was a good business idea to retro Zoom Vick 1.

Don't give up tho, keep searching that for DS 12.

Yea I did buy the white/black retro of the Vick 2 & 3. They did go to outlets though. I remember the “laser” 3 having all the etching. I’m still on the hunt G-Roc, I’ll keep the faith I can find them eventually.
