UPDATE: 43einhalb has released a collection of on-foot images of the new 'Summit White' snakeskin 97 ahead of its release next week.
Not the kind to use up a good idea on a single release, Nike have blessed the Air Max 97 with sumptuous snakeskin detailing. Last seen on the Supreme AM97 colab, which followed a black version released years earlier, the reptilian look returns in blinding white. Scaled leather slithers along the midsole, complemented by a creamy palette that reaches everywhere else. Luxe materials done up in crisp white has always been a staple, and drops like this prove the look ssssstill has plenty of bite.
The Nike Air Max 97 in ‘White Snakeskin’ is reported to release on June 29 through select Nike accounts.
