The Christian Tresser—designed Nike Air Max 97 has always looked good with a metallic sheen, but a lot of that has to do with nostalgia. It’s impossible for sneakerheads to look at the ‘Silver Bullet’ and not feel a way because it’s so ingrained in the culture.
However, this new threesome proves its mettle by crushing the shiny look without any preconceived notions or colab status. ‘White/Silver’, ‘Black/Silver’ and ‘Black/Gold’ iterations make excellent use of the water ripple–inspired uppers, each donning fiery red Swooshes.
Release dates for these aren’t readily available. But given they just appeared on US11, they’ll be in stores before you know it.
