Joining the parade of funky materials on the Air Max 97 is canvas – a material we don’t often (okay, never) associate with performance footwear. Canvas isn’t breathable and it isn’t the lightest of materials, but when viewed through the ‘lifestyle’ looking glass, canvas is one of the best materials out there. Will it fit well with the Air Max 97? That remains to be seen, but a look at these two upcoming tonal colorways of Black/White and Red/White have fairly impressed and eager to see what these will feel like in our hands and on our feet. Check out shots of both upcoming Summer 2012 releases below and let us know what you think. via CK.
