March is all about Air Max, as Nike plans on dropping a ton of appetizers in various forms leading up to the debut of the VaporMax on March 26th. There will most certainly be random surprise drops along the way, but this Air Max 97 for women has us scratching our heads…because it’s priced at $400. Officially dubbed the Air Max 97 LX, this new sneaker keeps it basic with an all-black upper built with nylon materials and a unique splatter treatment. The sole is nothing new, as Nike recycles the original Air Max 97 mold for this release. So what about this shoe demands a $400 price-tag? We really don’t know and these photos don’t make anything all that evident, but if you want ’em, UNDFTD is stocking them now.
Update: The NikeLab Air Max 97 LX costs $400 due to the upper featuring actual Swarovski crystals embedded in the upper. Each pair comes with a card insert.
