UPDATE: The ‘Triple Black’ Air Max is back! The AM97 Ultra update was snatched up by eager punters when it released earlier this month, but it’s just returned for a victory lap. If you missed out the first time, head over to Rock City Kicks now and make good on your intentions to cop.
Nike’s uber-modern Air Max 97 Ultra has been given a futuristic minimalist makeover with a hint of classic style. The new design has undergone a lifestyle sneaker rite of passage, stepping into the darkness with a ‘Triple Black’ build.
An intricately constructed upper features various weave patterns for a smooth, seamless finish, while stripes of 3M have been put in place to light the night. The big bouncy bubble lets the light of day shine through from forefoot to heel,giving the shoe that authentic Air Max feel.
The Nike Air Max 97 Ultra 17 ‘Triple Black’ will be available on August 17 from select stockists and Nike.com.
