The Nike Air Max 97 Gets a Sleek New LookRelease: TBC
The Nike Air Max 97 is preparing to rock a sleek new look, emerging in an impressive black, white and red colourway. Black is clearly the dominant shade here, with white saved for the laces, one thin wavy reflective halo around the upper, and some highlights on the outsole. Meanwhile, red is used sparingly on the Swooshes, heel tabs, and outsole. Like so many Air Max 97s, the excitement doesn’t stop when the sun goes down.
In fact, if you’re being a little mischievous, you could almost say these look a little similar to the controversial MSCHF x Lil Nas X ‘Satan Shoes’ – minus the human blood in the Air unit, of course. Limited to just 666 pairs, those polarising customs recently featured in Sneaker Freaker’s Most Valuable Sneakers of 2021 (so far).
Thankfully, this GR offering – as well as actual official Nike release – will most likely be available for the usual AM97 retail price. And pairs are expected to hit Nike and select Swoosh stockists very soon. Don’t blink and miss them!
