The Nike Air Max 97 Goes Wild With A Leopard Tongue And Reptilian Mudguard

The Nike Air Max 97‘s 25th anniversary celebration has countless sneaker enthusiasts excited for a reissue of the model’s original “Silver Bullet” style. And while the inaugural colorway is expected to return before 2022 ends, Christian Tresser’s design is exploring other ensembles first.

Recently, the revolutionary Air Max proposition appeared in a predominantly white, green and brown colorway. At quick glance, the pair simply falls in-line with other Nike Sportswear options prepped for autumn, but closer inspection reveals more. Tongues are clad in a leopard print that work in-tandem with the barely-discernible scale-like patterns wrapped around the shoe just above the midsole. Eye-catching red flair animates branding on the tongue, spine and outsole, delivering heritage alongside fashion-forward cues.

Enjoy official images of the pair ahead, and anticipate a Nike.com launch soon.
