The Air Max 1, 90 and 95 followed the Air Force 1, Dunk and other Hyperfuse updates, but no single Nike Sportswear silhouette, running or otherwise, is a better candidate for this kind of upgrade than the one pictured above. The Nike Air Max 97 Hyperfuse is a logical extension of a design so teched-out and futuristic, it has still yet to be fully accepted into the canon of ‘casual’ classic runners on the scale of the aforementioned Maxes. That also means the AM97 Fuse makes a smoother transition, and this take on the OG ‘Silver Bullet’ colorway has a very natural feel, even without the reflective elements. See for yourself after the jump, let us know how they compare to the ‘dipped’ Dynamic Blue and Total Orange joints that dropped earlier in the summer, and stick with Sneaker News for release info as these have started to show up at select Asian retailers.
