Nike Sportswear has been prepping a plant dye-inspired collection for the past five to six months. Ahead of its anticipated April 29th launch, the multi-pair lineup has just revealed another Nike Air Max 97 in a “Coconut Milk” colorway accompanied by cork accents.
Akin to previously-seen iterations of the Air Force 1 and Air Max 90, the forthcoming pair primarily boasts a light colored base that allows for its complementary details to revel in the spotlight. Hits of “Light Sienna” and “Sesame” make their way into the mix, with natural cork accents throughout the vamp overlays and outsole arguably stealing the show. Botanical figures on the tongue also make a statement, while simultaneously nodding to the 12+ pair collection that’s been teased in segments since November 2020.

Updated April 28th, 2021: The release date for all the “Plant Based” collection has been postponed for a later date.
