This year marks 25 years since Christian Tresser's Air Max 97 was officially revealed to the world. Considered by many sneakerheads to be the most iconic sneaker of all time, we've been seeing quite a few special edition colorways get unveiled over the past few months, including the upcoming Nike Air Max 97 Athletic Company "Gorge Green." Inspired by the Beaverton-based brand's college athletics days, you seriously don't want to miss out on these.
Crafted from the classic mesh and leather combination that we all know and love, this AM97 boasts a gorge green color scheme and a contrast sail tongue. Creamy laces give the shoe a vintage vibe, while fiery Swooshes make their way to the tongue tag and lateral sidewall for that unmistakably Nike look and feel. Of course, you can't talk about this special edition colorway without mentioning the "Nike: The Sports & Athletic Company" branding that's printed on the insoles, complete with a flag motif for a throwback aesthetic.
Dropping alongside an Air Force 1 Low and Dunk Low, the Nike Air Max 97 Athletic Company Gorge Green is releasing March 1st, 2023, in men's sizes with a retail price yet TBA. Expected to launch via Nike, the SNKRS app, and select online and in-store retailers, make sure you keep it locked for your best chance to cop, and hit us up on Twitter and ourMobile App to be kept up to date with the hottest sneaker and streetwear releases and news!
