Nike Air Max 97 'Neon Seoul' Rumoured for Air Max Day Release
March has begun, and with it comes the favourite time of the year for many sneakerheads: Air Max month. The third month has become synonymous with fire Nike releases, and this year is shaping up to be a big one. Not only is atmos’ technicolour Air Max2 Light rumoured to launch on March 26, but the word is the Nike: On Air-winning ‘Neon Seoul’ Air Max 97 will drop around then too.
The brightly coloured Max, designed by Gwang Shin, is inspired by the neon lights of Seoul and takes its red and blue scheme from the Taegeuk symbol of the Korean flag. An oversized Swoosh and ‘Seoul’ tongue badge add the final flourish.
Look for Beaverton to confirm the drop date as we approach AMD, and stay tuned for news about the other Nike: On Air winners.
