Working on top of a white base, the Air Max 97's signature multi-material construction shines through completely here. The top half opts for mesh and leather layers and is decorated with a yellow and orange gradient effect that's sure to turn heads wherever you go. The bottom half, on the other hand, is wrapped in a creamy leather mudguards that's crisp and clean. Woven pull tabs are stitched across the tongue and heel for that classic AM97 vibe, and all of this sits on top of a pristine full length Air unit that's as comfortable as it gets.
