Three Drops That Prove Nike’s Air Max 97 Is for the Ladies

For years, female sneakerheads have been stuck with far fewer options than their male counterparts, especially when it comes to the classics. 

Those looking to cop the best releases were often stuck picking off the smallest sizes available in a men’s run, or grabbing youth sizes if a drop happened to be available in GS form. Otherwise, they had to settle for releases in stereotypical colourways.

Thankfully that’s all changed in recent years as brands have (finally) crafted more coveted kicks in women’s sizes, including a bunch of ladies exclusives. The best part of the change, though, is that women are finally getting their own versions of the most iconic silhouettes — and there’s nothing particularly stereotypical about them. And at the forefront? The smooth bullet train—inspired lines of the Christian Tresser—designed Air Max 97.

Below, we take a look at some of the best women’s AM97s that the Swoosh has offered up this season.

Nike Air Max 97 SE ‘Vast Grey/Metallic Gold’

The recent ‘Metallic’ pack of Air Max classics is the rare collection that comes with men’s and women’s sneakers alike. The ‘Vast Grey’/‘Metallic Gold’ colourway is the standout, juxtaposing understated smooth grey leather and matching mesh with a clean white midsole and scene-stealing gold patent leather.

Nike Air Max 97 LX ‘Hyper Jade’

Nike are the leader in the overbranded trend and have applied the concept to countless drops lately. One of the highlights has been the Swoosh’s recent smattering of Air Maxes, including a number of Air Max 97s. The ‘Hyper Jade’ look is one of the best of the bunch, applying the namesake hue to a tonal upper of leather and mesh, as well as the interior of the full-length Max Air unit itself.
