Nike is constantly, and sometimes blatantly, drawing inspiration from past releases, be it the Air Jordan 1 “Chicago” or the best from the iconic ACG line-up. This upcoming Air Max 97 is no exception to the trend, as it ostensibly celebrates 2004’s Air Max 1 “Crepe.”

Much like its inspiration, this Air Max 97 sports earth tones throughout its construction. Dark brown suedes outfit the mudguard, while shades of cream and white mark the mesh and leather details immediately above. Below, the midsole, too, is kept achromatic, while the bottom opts for a light gum instead of the crepe sole signature to the above-mentioned Air Max 1. Moreover, the blue Swoosh is removed as well, replaced by neutral-thread embroidery.

For a closer look at this upcoming Air Max 97, peep the official images below. A release date has not yet been confirmed, so sit tight as we await future updates.

In other news, the Air Jordan 37 Satou Sabally was unveiled yesterday.
