Nike’s Air Max line has garnered worldwide success over the past three decades. Models like the Air Max 1, Air Max 95 and Air Max Plus have even gained region-specific, cult-like followings – so much so that Nike has recognized them through colorways, collaborations, design input and marketing campaigns. And while special, city-specific shoutouts often leave enthusiasts elsewhere feeling left out. An upcoming red, white and blue Air Max 97, however, serves as a patriotic option for fans across dozens of countries and territories. Colorless mesh bases set the stage for the rich blue mudguards and tongues on this pair. Elsewhere, a scarlet hue interrupts the duo at the top-most vamp overlays and branding across the midfoot, tongue and heel. The trio rounds out this impressive AM97 down below as plain midsoles get their outsoles animated with blue tread and red Swoosh badges.
Grab a closer look at this tri-colored Air Max 97 here below while you wait for pairs to hit Nike.com in the coming months.
