UPDATE: This is a public service announcement: do not miss these Air Max 97s! The white 'Future Forward' and the 'Nocturnal Animal' in black and white have already landed and are still available; the other four will hit Nike SNKRS on August 4. Choice colourways from the last drop like the 'Marina Blue' have already sold out, so be quick!
Even the least numerically astute sneakerheads out there will have clued onto the fact that this year marks the 20th anniversary of our esteemed Air Max 97. For many it’s a top-five style – the Swoosh would have been crazy to let the milestone pass by without making a bit if a fuss. And so, a deservedly big fuss was made.
The next act in the year-long variety show of 97 releases brings a quintet of colourways put together using the OG style of construction, featuring layered leather and mesh panels, and with that elongated air unit down below. There are simple black and white options fronting the drop, while a trio of soft pastel premium versions are backing them up.
The Nike Air Max 97 OG Black and White will drop on August 1 at select stockists, while the Premium versions will be available from August 4.
