UPDATE: We're definitely digging the all-out gold rush that Nike have been unleashing, and we're especially into the reappearance of a gold-certified classic. As the release date approaches, we thought we'd take the chance to spotlight the Air Max 97 – you just can't beat the original.
Nike’s 2017 Air Max Day more than buoyed interest in retro Air – it sent it through the roof! All we needed was a small taste of the Maxes from days gone by to reinstate demand. Luckily, the benevolent folks over at Beaverton have no problem appeasing our desires. They’ve since given us a bevy of ‘Silver Bullet’ make-ups, covering a selective who’s who of their back catalogue, and now they’re stepping up the podium to do the same with a ‘Metallic Gold’ collection. The precious posse counts an Air Max 97, Air Max Plus, Air Max 95, Air Max Zero and Air Max Jewell among its ranks. We’ve taken a cursory glance at all, but with the release looming closer we saw fit to give you a comprehensive look of everything the collection has to offer – just in case you were on the fence. Enjoy!
The Nike Air Max Metallic Gold collection will be available in men's and women's sizes on May 18 from the SNKRS page of NDC.
