Nike’s Vapormax 97 is an interesting hybrid silhouette, fusing the bullet train-inspired upper of the Air Max 97 with the futuristic cushioning tech of the Vapormax for a look that nods to two of their most ambitious silhouettes. Now it’s surfaced in a new “Persian Violet” colorway that pulls inspiration from another classic Max makeup — the Air Max BW. A dark black serves as the base color while regal purple accents arrive alongside dashes of white on the midfoot logo and swooping upper stripes. A single strip of reflective material offers a little extra low-light detailing, and the shoe is then completed by a semi-translucent Vapormax cushioning unit that’s also dressed in a rich “Persian Violet.” Check out a full set of official images below, and look for these grade-school only Nike shoes to release November 26th on Nike.com and at select Swoosh Brand stockists.
