A Nike Silver Bullet 97 but Not as You Know It

More than two decades after the Air Max 97 hit the shelves, designer Christian Tresser has given us a look at the first-ever sample produced on the road to the 'Silver Bullet'. The early edition features distinct differences from the shoe we know today, including deeper waves and a moulded Swoosh rather than the recognisable embroidered branding. The initial pressing also utilised yellow accents on the outsole, but it’s easy to see the overall vision Tresser was working with.
