Air Max 1 Influence Rubs Off On the AM97

Date: November 09 2017

By: Matt Williams


While collectors eagerly await a release date announcement for Sean Wotherspoon's RevolutionAir-y Air Max 1 x Air Max 97 hybrid, Nike have quietly dropped their own fusion of the two influential runners in the form of the Air Max 97 'Royal.'

Unlike Wotherspoon's take, the physical construction of the AM97 hasn't been altered for this release – instead this hybrid is all about material and colour. Drawing from the OG Air Max 1 'Royal', these sleek speedsters feature mesh-based uppers equipped with leather 'Game Royal' mudguards and matching mini Swooshes. Two of the AM97's signature reflective stripes have been retained to seal the hybridisation with just the right amount of pop.

The release joins the recently revealed Air Max 97 'Neon', which honoured the Air Max 95.

The Air Max 97 'Royal' is available now from select Nike Sportswear stockists, including Titolo.
