Just as the New Year began, Sneaker News showed you a sick collection of Air Max footwear inspired by the 2013 Nike Running “USATF” Collection. Beyond the actual colorway and design of the shoe, the sneaker models involved all incorporated the build of the all-new Air Max+ 2013; there was, of course, the Air Max+ 2013, but also a funky Air Max 1 2013, which featured the 2013 cushion supporting an Air Max 1 Hyperfuse upper. Joining this incredible collection of footwear is the Nike Air Max 97 2013; an Air Max 97 with a Hyperfuse-built upper is joined by the Air Max+ 2013 outsole, offering up quite the fitting upgrade to the first “full-length” visible Max Air running shoe of Nike’s revered heritage. More of this sick release below, so take a look and stay tuned to Sneaker News for potential release info.

Following up on the Hyperfuse trend of the past couple of years, Nike is again remixing some of its most beloved Nike Air Max silhouettes with a brand new technology. That would be Engineered Mesh, a perforated, proprietary material that allows designers to zone out different sections of the sneaker that require more or less flexibility. The Nike Air Max 1, Nike Air Max 90, Nike Air Max 95, and the Nike Air Max 97 are all set to hit in January of 2013 in a group of OG colorways made futuristic by the EM designation. Continue reading for the high res shots of each and let us know if you approve.

The best way to ring in a new year is sharing a kiss with your beloved, and Nike Sportswear will extend that into a humongous hug the likes of which legends are made.  The Nike Air Max OG Pack brings together the original styles from NSW’s four most frequently released retro runners, with the Nike Air Max 1 and AM90 adding VNTG (or OG, in this case) treatments to their red-accented designs while the more advanced Air Max 95 and 97 show their relative age with more pristine builds.  A quartet of colorways no serious sneakerhead should be without, these Air Max classics are scheduled for a December 31st release, so be sure to stick with Sneaker News for updates throughout the holiday season.

Joining its OG Air Max brethren in the EM transformation is the Air Max 97 in the standard ‘Silver Bullet’ colorway. The 97s have displayed the most unique use of Engineered Mesh, serving as the primary base of the shoe (which, we should mentioned, was already a mesh material) with a distinct pattern giving the ‘performance’-anchored design an unprecedented visual appeal. Like all the other Air Max EM models, the ‘Silver Bullet’ 97 EM is headed for a release this January at retailers worldwide, so flip through the detailed gallery below for a better look and let us know if you think Engineered Mesh on the 97 is a good fit.

Nike Air Max 97 Premium “Blackend Blue”

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.

“History of Air” is getting a bit of an unofficial revisiting in 2013 as news of the Silver Bullet 97s are confirmed for a release this January. For those not familiar, Nike embarked on a retrospective of its most iconic Air Max models as part of a celebratory gesture for the Air Max 360; since then, the Silver Bullet Air Max 97s were released a few more times, and this January ’13 release means that Nike intends for these original Air Maxes (like the Neon 95) to be on everyone’s feet. If you already have a pair, you can afford to pass on this release, but for those lacking, keep your eye out for these this coming January.

Nike Air Max 97 “Italy” – Silver

It was a little over a week ago, that in discussion of a Euro-exclusive Nike Air Max 97 featuring stripes from the Italian flag on its pull-loops, that Sneaker News reminded you of last year’s incredible Lux leather edition.  It turns out there are more comparisons to be made, as another Italy-striped Air Max 97 has arrived exclusively at Foot Locker EU.  This time, they stay rooted more closely to the OG ‘Silver Bullet’ look with just the aforementioned stripes providing a contrast (even the Swooshes are silver on this one).  This metallic leather getup might not have the reflectivity of the originals but there’s still plenty of visual impact; will you reach across the Atlantic to get yourself a pair?
