When the climate turns harsh and the thermostat dips below freezing, it means fresh footwear options are limited. Nike look to broaden foul weather selections with the upcoming ‘Winter Utility’ Air Max 97.
Despite its bright appearance, the upper and outsole have been beefed up to deal with the cold/wet elements. The mudguard looks like it has had a textured treatment to up water resistance, while padded fabric appears above to retain warmth. Below, the excellent gum rubber outsole takes on more aggressive tread patterns for extra traction.
This Air Max 97 edition should be releasing in the coming weeks from Nike retailers.
