Riccardo Tisci and NikeLab have a very special offering planned for Air Max Day. That’s right, yet another must-have release is headed to retailers during Nike’s annual holiday celebrating visible air, as the Riccardo Tisci x Nike Air Max 97 Mid will release on March 26th exclusively at NikeLab retail locations.

In an interview with Nike News, Tisci opened up about how he believes the next great trend in the fashion world is honesty. He looked inward for his latest Swoosh collaborative effort, as the Nike Air Max 97 has had a storied history throughout Italy, as many consider it the official Air Max of the country. “The Air Max 97 had huge influence and impact on Italian culture. The Air Max 97 is an iconic, young shoe of 90s. At the time I was involved with DJs and music, and in the clubs the people leading the big waves were wearing Air Max. That period has a lot of history. It was the first meeting of sportswear and fashion.

Tisci adds a mature twist to the iconic sportswear model, as a mid-top construction features premium tumbled leather with embossed RT x Nike branding on the updated ankle collar. The all black colorway also features touches of suede on the tongue and underlying wavy panels, giving it an updated lifestyle aesthetic that goes beyond just the updated height. Metallic Gold accents on the Swoosh branding throughout add a luxurious finish sure to please those looking for a streetwear-ready take on the Air Max 97 like they’ve never seen before.

You can read the full piece over on Nike News and you can grab the Riccardo Tisci x NikeLab Air Max 97 Mid on March 26 at NikeLab.com and all NikeLab locations. Check out more detailed photos below.
