Perhaps the most well known two-sport athlete of his time, it’s only fitting that two Deion Sanders retro models have dropped this year. Back in July, the Air Diamond Turf made a return and has since dropped in several colorways. In more recent months, the Air Diamond Turf Max 96 has resurfaced, the latest set to release here at Eastbay later this month.

Last released in 2007, this pair features a varsity red synthetic base, covered by jagged white leather overlays. Black works the inner liner, mesh on the tongue and the heel pull-tab. Red continues to do the job on the midsole and Max Air unit, which sit above a black and red rubber outsole. Also worth noting is the replacement of Deion’s old Diamond Turf logo with a Nike logo on the tongue pull.

The White/Varsity Red-Black colorway of the Air Diamond Turf Max 96 will be available at Eastbay on November 20th.
