The Nike Air Max 97 Next Nature Enters Stealth ModeRelease: TBC
But it was Lil Nas X’s unofficial, Internet-busting AM97 ‘Satan Shoes’ that really had commentators sweating back in March, the rapper and agent-provocateur installing real human blood in the Air Max unit.
Still, the black market collaboration ensured a surge in popularity for the Nike Air Max 97, the latest murdered-out design a testament to the inedible DNA of the silhouette.
Belonging to Nike’s ‘Move to Zero’ mission, the Air Max 97 Next Nature is again manufactured with recycled materials denoted by the Swoosh wheel logo on the insoles. Aesthetically, minimalism is the MO here, the triple black mesh and leather uppers elevated by 3M reflective detailing. Classic branding strikes the tongues and midfoot foam components, while down below, classic rubber outsoles complete the design.
Look for the Nike Air Max 97 Next Nature to release over the coming weeks. The retail price is $170.
