The bullet train inspired upper of the Air Max 97 has become quite a sight for sore eyes as it fills the many release calendars of retailers all across the globe. While seemingly stretching the bounds of the layered upper, the Beaverton Brand shows its many inspired toolings that breathe new life into the silhouette each time. As a return to its roots, the newest colorway calls back to some of the most notable releases: the staple Silver Bullet and the bold Metallic Gold. Fusing these two almost glossy kits creates a luxurious overall aesthetic, interweaving the bolder tone with the more neutral silver to create a fresh yet familiar take on the classic runner. Though Currently available now at retailer LifestyleSports, the pair has yet to make a larger stateside release but expect them to hit Nike.com and select stockists very soon.
