Nike Sportswear’s plant dye-inspired collection has panned out to be much more expansive than just a handful of pairs. And for its latest proposition, the capsule has taken a previously-seen “Coconut Milk”-colored Nike Air Max 97 and outfitted it with yellow accents to deliver a women’s-exclusive option.
As aforementioned, the upcoming arrangement has emerged before on a men’s counterpart. Off-white flair takes over the bulk of the model’s fabric upper, with hits of speckled cork interrupting the rather tonal look across the vamp. A botanical cork graphic is embroidered onto the heel, while mid-foot mini swooshes and collar lining abandon a previously-used orange for a muted yellow that matches with the cork detailing better. Underfoot, the full-length visible Airbag blends into its surrounding foam complement, while cork outsoles round out the eco-friendlier Air Max 97.
An official release date hasn’t been confirmed yet, but this women’s Air Max is likely to launch on Nike.com before summer ends. In any case, enjoy images of the shoes ahead.
