Nike’s irreverent “Kiss My Airs” pack is returning.
First seen in late 2020 and early 2021, the “Kiss My Airs” collection saw a variety of Nike Sportswear classics donning the bold slogan via an exterior tab on the upper, further market by the use of Tinker Hatfield’s safari print. Nearly two years later, we’re seeing the Air Max 97 of that in-line collection, utilizing a familiar “Silver Bullet” style colorway with the textured material on the chief layer of the upper. Hits of light neon green are seen on the miniature Swoosh logo as well as the forefoot sector of the visible Air Unit.
The use of safari print is quite unexpected considering Tinker didn’t have much to do with the 97 (or even the previously seen 95 model), but there’s no question that this funky material, inspired by a couch, takes us back to that groundbreaking era of Air Max shoes that left the industry in the dust. That said, the “Kiss My Airs” mantra seems fitting.
Check out the official images here and stay tuned for full release details.
