Although the Nike Air Max 97 has always been a popular silhouette, it’s truly established a spot in the pantheon of Nike’s best and most consistent lifestyle releases over the last two years. Now, sitting alongside other iconic Nike shoes like the Air Force 1 and the Air Max 1, the 97 is a part of every season’s release calendar — and it’s rolling right along into autumn with this clean new black and teal colorway that gives off retro Seattle Mariners vibes. The bullet train-inspired upper overlays are dressed in a smoky black while a white mesh is used for the base, creating a look that lets the bullet train-inspired design stand out as much as possible. Bright teal accents are present as well, as the sockliner, heel tab branding, and Swooshes all opt for the contrasting color. The shoe is then completed by a black midsole, black Air Max unit, and two-tone outsole. Enjoy a full set of official images, and look for these striking new Maxes to release at the retailers listed below later this Fall.
