It’s the Air Max 97’s 20th birthday, but we’re the ones getting all the gifts. A new leak previews a whopping 20 new styles for the 90s runner, adding to the last leak with new versions of the Ultra Jacquard while revealing a neoprene update.
These colourways build on the model’s lineage by tweaking revered make-ups like the ‘Silver Bullet’ and ‘Metallic Gold’ with new materials. Designs from other runners have even been adopted, notably the Air Max 95’s seminal ‘Neon’ combo. Additionally, a mesh alternative to the leather ‘Triple Black’ finds its way into the mix along with a stack of unseen iterations set to become new-gen favourites.
The new colourways of the Nike Air Max 97 don’t have a solid release date, but you can expect them to hit stores sometime this year.
