When the Nike Sportswear team revived the Air Max 90 “Laser Blue” this past July, they also allowed its retro motif to spill into other silhouettes such as the Air Max 97. And now with a couple of weeks before the return of the AM 90 “Infrared”, or as the Swoosh now calls it “Radiant Red”, that very same mentality is being called upon once more as the AM 97 has appeared in the very same palette.
Revealed today through official imagery, this forthcoming iteration features blasts of its titular her towards the oval-shaped tongue tabs, Swooshes, Air units, insoles and the lower most overlay. Mudguards, along with the additional wavy reflective lines are submerged in a “Wolf Grey” tone, and come neighbored by a stark black synthetic layer which rests underneath. You can sift through detailed images of this archive-inspired colorway here below, and expect a Nike.com launch on November 9th, the same day that the aforementioned AM 90 “Radiant Red” drops.
Elsewhere in sneaker news, the Air Jordan 4 Fire Red released by surprise today.
