Denim and sneakers are an iconic pairing, but denim-adorned sneakers take it to the next level. Recently, an influx of denim-clad kicks has come through, namely the DENHAM collaboration, which saw the Amsterdam-based atelier upgrade a trio of Air Maxes and a luxurious Blazer Mid. Now, Nike are taking it into their own hands, pulling up with an Air Max 97 and decking out the bubbly beauty in dark washed denim.
The upper of this iteration gets dressed in a two-tone combo of ‘Dark Smoke Grey’ and ‘Vast Grey’, and while the build stays the same as any other AM97, the denim material used delivers an impressive point of difference. Elevating the washed look, Team Swoosh have frayed the edges, giving off a distressed vibe, and added red pops on the side and tongue Swoosh. Down below, a black midsole complements the icy blue outsole and rear stripes.
The official images have come through, so take a good look at them above. So far, a release date hasn’t come through, but we hear that these denim-clad Nike Air Max 97s should be arriving at your local Swoosh stockist within the next few months.
