Packed full of retro details.
Christian Tresser's Air Max 97 is, no doubt, one of the most iconic sneakers ever made. To celebrate the model's 25th Anniversary this year, the Oregon sportswear giant has been releasing some pretty cool colorways, including the Nike Air Max 97 "Obsidian Gorge Green" that has just been revealed for the Holiday season.
Inspired by varsity jackets from the '80s and '90s, this AM 97 features a midnight navy upper that's crafted from mesh, leather, and suede. Wavy panels swoop across the upper for that signature water ripple-inspired aesthetic, and embroidered Swoosh branding on the sides and tongue pay homage to the patches that you might find on the aforementioned outerwear pieces. Gorge Green pull tabs offer a dash of convenience, and underneath the sail Max Air cushioned midsole you'll find a gum rubber outsole that adds traction and durability with every step, making these perfect for the wet and windy months ahead.
Releasing in September 2022, the Nike Air Max 97 Obsidian Gorge Green W will be available in women's sizing with retail set at $180 and will launch alongside a complementary Air Max 1. Expected to drop at Nike and select stockists online and in-store, make sure you keep it locked to our Twitter and Mobile App to stay up to date on future releases.
