With its full-length Air unit and wavy overlays, the Nike Air Max 97 is often the host of futuristic colorways that align with techwear trends. This is the case yet again for an upcoming pair that is getting dressed in reflective accents and hits of “Racer Blue.”
A pitch-black mesh and pebbled leather base starts the sleek arrangement off, followed by a black neoprene-like tongue. The signature wavy overlays that adorn the sides exhibit a mix of dark grey and reflective makeups. More reflective detailing is applied to the logo patch on the tongue. Directly above the midsole, a black overlay featuring a subtle carbon fiber-style checkerboard pattern is found—likening the material used on a recently revealed Air Force 1. Similar to the AF 1, the Max Air proposition adds a blue embroidered Swoosh on the aforementioned overlay. The “Racer Blue” shade is further used in the Air bag and on the heel pull tab to complete the new offering.
Enjoy official images of the Air Max 97 below, which will hit the listed retailers in the coming months with a price tag of $160.
In other swoosh-related news, we may be getting the Nike Dunk Low “Georgetown” this summer.
