With the likes of the Nike Air Structure Triax ’91, old school silhouettes have been been a comeback throughout the year. Another Swoosh classic to be seeing the light of day again is the canvas-clad Nike Retro GTS 97. The new release serves as a modern update to a 1996 skate classic that still retains its heritage style.

Launching in a “Matte Aluminum” colorway, the pair sports a white recycled canvas upper and a signature vulcanized rubber sole unit. Profile Swoosh outlines and the logo on the tongue are in a dark navy blue for a sleek aesthetic. The leather-like heel tab adds a premium touch to the rather simple design. A modern sockliner, fused midsole, and a cushioned insole are updates to the model that elevate the comfort and durability factor of the ’90s proposition.

Take a closer look at the Retro GTS 97 below, which will be available on July 27th on Nike.com at a price of $65.

In other Swoosh-related news, cozy fleece lining is found on an upcoming Nike Air Force 1.
