The Nike Air Max 97 is in the midst of its 25th anniversary. And while no word has been confirmed by the brand about the pair’s return to “Silver Bullet” form, the sneaker has emerged in handfuls of compelling new styles over the last seven months.
Akin to a previously-seen Air Max 1, the latest take on Christian Tresser’s game-changing creation indulges in a letterman theme. A mix of understated “Obsidian” and “Midnight Navy” tones take over the bulk of the upper, allowing branding all throughout to deviate in smart “Gorge Green” and purple flair. Varsity jacket-inspired letters are abandoned on the next Air Max proposition, but “Sail” and “Light Gum Brown” arrangements underfoot round out the sneaker’s retro aesthetic.
Enjoy official images of the pair ahead, and anticipate a Nike.com launch soon
