In honor of the Air Max 97‘s 25th Anniversary, Nike is ushering in the return of the iconic “Silver Bullet.” And though it’ll be a few months shy of the celebration, the equally beloved “Gold Bullet” is also slated to make a comeback, expected to do so in the Spring of 2023.
Last seen in 2018, the “Gold Bullet” originally released in 1999. Much like its inaugural appearance, the 2022 Retro applies gold throughout its construction, from the polished leather overlays to the mesh base underneath. The laces, too, are gilded, while the lining, pull-tabs, and outsole opt for a much darker, black-dominant finish. Hits of red are strung adjacent as well, mimicking the above-mentioned “Silver Bullet” by way of the miniature Swooshes and tread detailing.
For a quick look at the upcoming re-release of the “Gold Bullet,” see below. These are currently expected to land in Spring 2023, with certain outlets suggesting a March release.
In other news, official images of the Dunk Low Beetroot recently surfaced.
