When it comes to recent hybrids, Nike’s Air VaporMax 97 has got to be the best. We might have said that about the Air VaporMax Plus, and we meant it, but then this guy rolls through in ‘Silver Bullet’ and, just like that, we have a new leader.
The VaporMax’s signature full-length Air unit and the 97’s iconic upper are a match made in hybrid heaven. And the legendary colourway – which we got used to seeing in its Ultra iteration last year – returns in OG form with ample 3M for a triple-charge of 90s rave nostalgia.
Some lucky corners of the globe will see these drop before March is out; the rest will have to hold tight 'til April 12, when Nike Air VaporMax 97 'Silver Bullet' will release through Nike stores and select retailers.
