Our pals at Nike have caused a storm this summer with Nike 97’s being released, in colours ‘Silver bullet’, ‘Gold’ and ‘White Snakeskin’. The sneaker has been particularly popular with the streetwear community, being paired with tracksuits, culottes and cargos. It’s easy to see why they’ve been such a hit and it looks like they’re about to release them in 20 more colours… that’s right, 20!
Any sneakerhead will know, Air Max’s are one of the most iconic trainers in the Western world. With designs both available for men, women and children… there isn’t anybody left out. Nike have created Air Max’s since the dawn of time, well, 1987 to be exact. With over 60 Max’s designed, 97 OG’s are the most recent to hit release.
We anticipate high demand for the kicks as the three original colours all sold out immediately after each release by every single source, even online. Individuals are willing to pay almost double the price as others sell them on, we certainly wouldn’t mind a pair!
Retailing prices will start at £120 and be available in an array of colours such as ‘Marina Blue’, ‘Triple Black’ and ‘Neon’. The air max will have a slight change to the silhouette simply because Nike have the technology and designers to resource information and data that ensures their customers have the best possible comfort. This time, a one-piece jacquard will be used on the upper to keep them streamline yet remaining breathable. The ultra-modern aesthetic will remain although the pressure in the air bag will be cored with slightly more foam.
The original Nike Air Max 97 OG’s will be available from:
