From the "Kaleidoscope" to the "Kiss My Airs," there's no doubting the fact that we've seen some pretty wild and wonderful Air Max 97s over the past few weeks. With that said, it looks like Nike is ready to go back to basics with the upcoming Nike Air Max 97 "Pure Platinum Sail." One of the latest colorways to hit the Christian Tresser classic, if you're looking for a sneaker that you can rock with any fit you throw at it, this might just be the one for you.
It's hard to imagine a world without the AM97. Even though it debuted over a quarter of a century ago, its water ripple-inspired design still looks as futuristic as ever. Crafted from a classic leather and mesh combination, the upper is dipped in a pure platinum color scheme. Pull tabs adorn the tongue and heel for a rugged aesthetic, and Nike Swooshes are finely embroidered across the sidewalls. For a subtle pop of contrast, the inner sockliner and laces have both been painted in sail, and this creamy hue extends towards the midsole underfoot, where you'll find a full length Air unit that's still as comfortable as ever even after all this time.
Releasing in Fall 2023 exclusively in women's sizes, the Nike Air Max 97 Pure Platinum Sail W will retail for $175 and will be available at Nike, the SNKRS app, and select online and in-store retailers.
