Given the OG colourways of Christian Tresser’s Air Max 97 were metallic silver and gold, it makes sense for Nike to revisit glinted palettes. The latest colour to appear is somewhere between bronze and copper – perhaps completing the podium of AM97 OG colour-blocking.
Like the originals, the layered 3M-Reflective striping on the upper is retained, tonally matched to the synthetic panels. Sandwiched between these sections is breathable mesh to prevent sauna-like foot conditions. Toning down the entire package is the black sole, lining, tongue and pull-tabs.
Expect these at Nike retailers in coming weeks.
