The Nike Air Max 97 Ultra is a teched-out update of an old-school favourite, and one of the most talked about releases for a while. Nike’s commitment to heritage has ensured the shoe retains all the highlights that defined the OG, but they’ve stripped it back and built it in such a way that would have been unimaginable 20 years ago. The new ‘Silver Bullet’ hasn’t been created to replace the classic, but rather to complement it.
When you take a look up close, you’ll see just how advanced the new 97 is. A series of weave patterns create depth across the upper, while wavy strips of fused 3M encircle shoe for support and flair. Padding and comfort haven’t been sacrificed as part of the weight loss effort, and the stretched-out Air unit sports some of the clearest windows we’ve ever seen. The modern magnificence of the Ultra build has a streamlined sophistication all of its own and we’re sure it will feel right at home on top of your rotation.
The Nike Air Max 97 Ultra is available now from select stockists, including online from NDC or Nike SNKRS app.
