The Nike Air Max 97 Borrows The Famed Neon 95 Colorway

The Nike Air Max 97 got a late start on 2023, with only a few colorways having surfaced this past January. But now that February has begun and Air Max Day a little over a month away, things will likely soon pick up for the silhouette, starting with this newly-revealed, Volt-accented pair.

Even despite its lack of gradient, this Air Max 97 is very evidently reminiscent of the Air Max 95 “Neon,” borrowing much of the colorway’s signature palette. The color blocking itself, too, carriers that same energy, boasting a blacked out bottom, silver upper half, and a range of “Volt” accents.

Enjoy a closer, detailed look at this Nike Air Max 97 via the official images below. A release will likely come up faster than we think, so keep an eye out on Nike.com and select retailers.

In other news, first looks at the Jordan JT1 Archer Ave surfaced earlier this morning.


UPDATE (05/01/2023):
The shoes are available now on Nike.com.
