Nike Air Max 97 “Have a Nike Day”

The sneaker is wrapped in a tonal blue upper, constructed from mesh, nubuck and canvas in different shades of blue ranging from light to dark. The stand-out feature of the silhouette — and the inspiration for its name — is the “Have a Nike Day” taping that wraps around the entire shoe. The sneaker is then finished with white embroidered Swoosh branding, a full-length white midsole, a blue air unit and a Swoosh-adorned smiley face on the lacing unit. –HB


Nike Air Max 97 “Unboxed”

To pay homage to the cardboard boxes used to ship sneakers, this AM97 model is dressed in various tones of browns on its wave-pattern upper, while a barcode placed on the outsole adds a final nod to the packages being scanned before shipping. The barcode motif then carries over to the right heel tab, while stripped tongues symbolizes the tape Nike uses for online orders. Located on the insole is a stamp of Nike‘s box certification from its Memphis factory. –HB


Nike Air Max 97 “Panda”

Nike‘s Air Max 97 has been taking the lead as the most popular model since its 20th Anniversary in 2017. Drawing ideas from the contrasting fur colors of the Chinese national heirloom, the Swoosh brand juxtaposes black and white leather stripes on the upper of the bullet train-like silhouette. The neat white sole houses the Air-assisted unit while Swooshes on the tongue tab and on midfoot round off the look of this edition. Stay tuned for more information. –HB


Nike Air Max 97 “Black Reflective”

The latest iteration features an all-over tonal black colorway with reflective accents on the wave-like uppers to boot. As far as construction goes, the shoe is equipped with a leather and mesh upper combination alongside the foam midsole with Max-Air cushioning for unparalleled comfort. Peep the kicks above and cop one now at select retailers for $177. –HB


Nike Air Max 97 ‘Anthracite Gold’

The Nike Air Max 97 has surely seen its fair share of releases in 2018. As the year comes to a close, Nike blacks out the sleek runner with a small dose of anthracite on its midsole. The full-length Air Max unit matches the tonal upper with metallic gold accents shared on the Swoosh logos. Lastly, the simple colorway is finalized thanks to 3M reflective accents throughout the upper’s piping. These are currently available for $170 at select Nike Sportswear locations. –HB

As Nike‘s Air Max 97 prepares to close out a banner year, the sneaker giant still has several special packs on the way, including the recent “Jacket” pack and this forthcoming “Metallic” release. Encompassing a trio of 97s, the pack includes a silhouette that recalls the famed “Silver Bullet” colorway that received much acclaim last year. Read more…


Nike Air Max 97 SE “Velvet Brown”

Nike offers up another premium take to its iconic Air Max 97 silhouette, this time in a lush “Velvet Brown” colorway. The tonal colorway sees an upper made of layers of leather and synthetic material, alternating from brown to gridiron in its ripple-like design. Muted branding can be in the form of a tonal Swoosh at the arch, tongue and heel of the shoe. Another nice touch in these trainers can be seen in the subtle contrast from the dark-brown uppers and the clear full-length air unit. Those interested can find these over at the Nike web store for a price of $170. –HB
