UPDATE: People are loving the Ultra upgrade of Nike's Air max 97, but you've gotta respect the OG. Here the build that helped unfold a thousand camp chairs is dressed in a measured and restrained 'Wolf Grey', shirking colourful flourishes to let the design speak for itself. If you're feeling the look, you can get your own pair on August 31 from Overkill.
Nike are going full steam ahead with the Air Max 97’s 20th birthday celebrations. They recently dished on the Ultra iteration and shared new colourways of the OG build – one of which we can offer a detailed look at. The ‘Wolf Grey’ number flaunts the design language that has kept the runner on feet for two decades, while keeping the colourway subdued. Artistic license has been taken with these shots to make them look extra rustic, but they'll look every bit the modern marvel when laced up.
The Nike Air Max 97 in Wolf Grey will be available on August 4 from Politics.
