If you’re looking for a shoe that’s clean and classic with just enough standout flair to draw attention, Nike’s Air Max 97 just might be a perfect silhouette for you. It’s an important part of the Swoosh Brand’s lifestyle releases each and every season, and now it’s appeared in a new mix of hyper royal and cool grey that’s ideal for the summer months. The upper’s OG silver tones are swapped out for a more muted combination of greys both light and dark, while a white mesh base holds the look together. Ever-so-slight pops of blue are then dispersed through the midfoot logo, heel tab, and tongue for a small touch of sporty flair. You might not catch it at first glimpse either, but there’s plenty of high-vis reflective material present here as well, as under a flash the tongue and upper’s bullet train-inspired racing stripes light up, ensuring that their presence is fully felt. A white midsole, grey Air Max unit, and grey outsole then finalize the look. These new 97s will release on Nike.com for $160 USD soon, so peruse a full selection of official images below in the meantime.
