The Nike Air Max 97 doesn’t boast the same mainstream popularity of other silhouettes under the NIKE, Inc. umbrella, but it’s been a go-to option among savvier consumers for years. For its latest proposition, the Christian Tresser-designed sneaker has indulged in a stealthy “Black” colorway slightly-accented by “Metallic Silver” hits.
Akin to iterations prepped for Valentine’s Days of yesteryear, the forthcoming pair indulges in a near-all-“Black” ensemble. Uppers, however, boast a traditional synthetic leather and mesh construction, instead of a sequin build. Swoosh branding on the profiles and tongue and “air max” text on the spine deviate from their monochromatic surroundings in a shimmering metallic tone. Visible Air cushioning underfoot also dons a grey-variant, but forgo the starkness of the aforementioned logos. Lastly, tread underfoot features the covert aesthetic and its visible counterpart.
