An ultra-wearable color palette hits the Christian Tresser classic.
The AM 97 is just one of those silhouettes that will never age. Even though it’s celebrating its 25th Anniversary this year, its overall design is still as futuristic as ever. With a vast range of wacky colorways scheduled to release from now towards the end of the year, it looks like Nike is taking a second to go back to basics with the upcoming Nike Air Max 97 "Black Reflective."
With so many crazy releases dropping left, right, and center, we’re actually very glad that this Air Max 97 is made for everyday wear. While it’s not as flashy compared to its counterparts, the black leather and mesh actually has a trick up its sleeve, because when it comes in contact with a flash of light the 3M-coated upper actually reflects it. Elsewhere, the mudguards have been done up in a glossier finish for a look that is sure to turn heads, and the full length Max Air midsole underfoot is dipped in a crisp white that’s as versatile as they come. The AM 97 has been around for a quarter of the century, but the design just never gets old.
The Nike Air Max 97 Black Reflective is set to release in 2022. It will drop at Nike, as well as select retailers worldwide, in-store and online. Coming in men's sizing, retail is set at $185. Keep it locked to our Twitter and Mobile App to stay up to date on future releases.
