The Nike Air Max 97, a model that revolutionized the sneaker industry with its full-length visible air unit, is set to receive a patriotic makeover. In addition to the re-release of the “Independence Day” colorway, a new iteration dubbed the "USA" nods to the American flag and embodies the spirit of the country the AM97 was born in.
The Nike Air Max 97 "USA" blends obsidian, white, and red hues to mimic the colors of the American flag. The shoe features a white leather toe box and profile, accentuated by red and obsidian wavy leather panels above. A black mesh layer serves as the base, complementing the obsidian sockliner, tongue, and lace set. The white tongue tags are adorned with red Nike Swoosh branding, a detail mirrored on the midfoot Swoosh and "Air Max" text on the heel. A white midsole housing the full-length Air unit is matched with an obsidian outsole, completing this patriotic ensemble.
The Nike Air Max 97 USA will release this fall through Nike and select retailers online and in-store. Coming in men’s sizing, the retail price is set at $175.
