A dozen years later, and the Nike Air Max 97 still looks quite futuristic. This latest edition capitalizes on the sleek design by adding just a small twist to an otherwise tame palette. The upper is all black, save a silver strip of reflective 3M material, a colour repeated inside the signature long Air pockets. The tiny touches of blue and red might be enough for a classy design, but Nike added a sparkly effect to the patent leather mudguard, taking this release to another level. They’re available now and you can cop yours today from Caliroots.
