The Air Max 97 is already Nike Sportswear’s most mesh-heavy classic runner, so pairing this track-inspired design with even more breathable speed is only going to make it better. The Nike Air Max 97 Premium pictured above features Nike’s all new Engineered Mesh material that, like the leather tracks that surround it, are dipped in the purplish Blackend Blue shade. The shift to a more dynamic mesh along with two-tone ticked laces and a speckled midsole gives these quite a lot of depth for what is on paper a simple purple/white design, and you can see more photos below for this February 2013 release.

lol... yup, they might as well say so.. cos it is! so i guess we should start calling Maroon as Blackened Red also... and if a poor little girl sees this and tells her parents "mom/dad I want that purple shoe"... should her parents correct her and say, "that's not purple, it's blackened blue"... smh on these nike marketing bs. just sayin...
