While we were all sitting around waiting to find out the release info for Nike’s Air Max 97 ‘Atlantic Blue’, Japan’s mita sneakers just went ahead and dropped them. The bad news is they’ve sold out but the good news is that a wider global release can’t be too far off. Originally released in 1997, the colourway has recently caused quite a stir among Max fiends as rumours of the 20th anniversary retro circulate. With a little bit of silver, a whole lot of blue and some pops of yellow, it's by no means a low-key design – but then, who wants to blend in anyway?
The Nike Air Max 97 ‘Atlantic Blue’ will be releasing soon at stockists worldwide, stay tuned for more info.
