Winter’s cold embrace is descending rapidly upon us, beginning to clutch the country with cold winds and smatterings of snowfall. Usually when the seasons switch, that means it’s time for a sneaker switch-up as well, as many sneakerheads will turn to darker-colored shoes or sneakerboots to combat the inclement weather. However, some sneaker lovers choose to look ahead to warmer days instead of staying mired in the disheartening cold — and they’re sure to be delighted by the unveiling of this new “Barely Green” Air Max 97 for the fairer sex, a shoe dropping this winter with a color that’s perfect for next spring and summer. The upper features a fusion of very faint green and tan tones for an almost gradient-style look: the top half offers a soft mint green on the bullet train-inspired overlays, tongue, and throat before giving way to a mild tan on the lower panels and nubuck mudguard. The upper’s fade then disappears into a clean white midsole, clear Air Max cushioning unit, and light grey outsole. Enjoy a set of official images below, and look for these minty Maxes to arrive at Swoosh Brand stockists later this season for $160 USD.
