Some say if it ain’t broke, don’t fix it. Others say if you’re onto a good thing, keep going. Or at least, I think they do. Either way, Nike have taken that thinking and applied it to the beloved Air Max 97 ‘Gold Metallic’.
We’ve seen a few plays on the gold and red colourway this year, but the latest might just be the greatest. Bright gold stretches across the upper, interspersed with silver waves to tone things down. Finally, red pops in all the usual places — midfoot, tongue and outsole — for final embellishment.
