Days away from 2021, Nike is slowly revealing their upcoming packs one-by-one. To go along with the upcoming Air Max 2090, the Air Max 97 is joining the gradient-dressed “The Future is in the Air” collection.

Like that of its more futuristic counterpart, the AM97 writes the overarching themes atop its upper, the text applied in thick, handwritten font. Swooshes mimic the style atop the heels of both feet as well as the insole, while the logos at the side and tongue stay more refined. The Air Unit and patterned mid-panel are also quite reminiscent of the aforementioned, with the former featuring an identical gradient and the latter an array of circular embellishments. But the similarities effectively end there: the transitioning color along the leather mudguard and mesh unders are far more pastel-driven and the scheme as a whole is just lighter by comparison.

Grab a detailed look at these right here and expect to see them at Nike.com in the new year.

In other news, images of the Dunk Low Michigan have been revealed.
