Updated March 7th, 2017: The Riccardo Tisci x Nike Air Max 97 Mid releases on March 17th, 2017 (Rome), followed by March 24th, 2017 (Asia), and March 26th, 2017 (Europe).
More Air Max surprises continue to surface as we get a first look at Riccardo Tisci’s next collaboration with Nike – the Air Max 97 Mid. Tisci’s built a reputation of reworking classic Nike icons like the Air Force 1 and Dunk, but his first foray into the realm of Air Max sees the 97 classic get a boot-like construction extended from the original silhouette. These early photos reveal quality leather materials on the upper with his signature Nike RT logo pressed into the ankle of the upper and contrast stitching around the “racing track” design. A release date is unknown, but we wouldn’t count out a release on or near Air Max Day, which falls on March 26th.
