“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?

Nike Air Max 97 “Italy”

Italy is responsible for arguably the most stunning pair of Nike Air Max 97s ever released, a luxurious leather build limited to just under 1700 pairs.  This latest AM97 release is constructed in a somewhat more familiar form mixing patent leather and mesh, but its tri-striped tongue and heel loops pull the black/white design toward the Mediterranean boot-shaped country with equal parts red, white and green.  These aren’t individually numbered but figure to still be a tough cop for US sneakerheads as a Foot Locker Europe exclusive, so have a closer look below and let us know if you’re able to import a pair.

All four colorways feature a orange-to-yellow gradient effect on the Engineered Mesh upper to achieve the effect of a sunset, with black nubuck mudguards amounting to the contrast on the upper. Expect these to arrive during the Summer 2013 season, so check out all four after the jump and let us know what you think about the use of this contemporary Engineered Mesh on older models.

Classics Revisited: Nike “Kashima Antlers” Pack (2006)

nike kashima antlers pack 2006 Classics Revisited: Nike Kashima Antlers Pack (2006)


Finishing off this week of bundles of Nike footwear here in Classics Revisited tied together by a distinct theme is the trio of Air Max releases from 2006 called the ‘Kashima Antlers’ Pack. This unique set was a tribute to the Kashima Antlers professional football club in Japan – the most successful club in the history of the Japan League Division 1 since its inception in 1993, but the origin of the Antlers club dates back to 1947. The Nike ‘Kashima Antlers’ Pack featured three significant models; the Air Max 95 and the Air Max 97, both of which are widely popular in Japan, and the Air Max 360, which debuted in late January of 2006. Of the three colorways, only the Air Max 360 is designed with the Kashima Antlers kit colors in mind (White, Black, and Red), but all three compositions capture a singular theme that were widely popular when the Kashima Antlers Pack was launched globally in late February.

The Air Max 95 features the pristine Gold and Royal colorway, using the Beige color as an accent on the upper mesh (Beige is on the official Kashima Antlers club crest). The Air Max 360 featured the widely popular laser detailing on the upper with Kashima Antlers FC written in Japanese on the tongue. The most popular and coveted of the entire Pack is the Air Max 97, which boasted the much-beloved elephant print on the upper with a teal-colored Max Air unit. The ’97 also featured Kashima Antlers branding on the tongue as well as on the heel pull-tab. Included in this special edition release was a custom tissue paper that lined the box as well as an envelope containing mini postcards of the world’s most significant football clubs – Man U. and Boca Jr’s to name a couple. Check out a gallery of all three from the ‘Kashima Antlers’ Pack below, and let us know if you’ve got any of these in your Air Max collection!

Nike Air Max 97 CVS ‘Sport Red’ – Available

The idea of a high-tech runner being built from canvas probably doesn’t seem like the best one on paper, but with the Nike Air Max 97 being long-since removed from its context as a performance sneaker its definitely fair game at this point for a bit of material mashup. The result is actually surprisingly natural looking, no doubt due in part to the solidly blocked releases that make up the range like the ‘Sport Red’ shown here. Fortunately for our stateside readers, this sneaker has touched down on American soil as of now and can be had at fine retailers like Oneness. Hit them up to grab a pair after you check out the rest of the Nike Air Max 97 CVS ‘Sport Red’ after the jump.
