Nike Air Max 97 “Spruce Aura”

The silhouette takes a simpler route with a mix of black, white and light grey. Dubbed “Spruce Aura,” the design’s cushioning is found in the black full-length Air Max unit sandwiched between a light grey outsole and white midsole. Moving towards the upper, you’ll find the same shade of grey in suede just above the midsole. The rest is delivered in black down to its laces, tongue and pull tabs. Finally, mini Swoosh logos finish off the “Spruce Aura” iteration on the tongues plus its lateral and medial sides. –HB


Nike Air Max 97 “Metallic Gold” Pack

The forthcoming pack takes things a step further than the legendary “Silver Bullet” iteration with two new “Metallic Gold” editions. The pack sees one version sporting “Metallic Silver/Metallic Gold-Black” as its partner sees “Vast Grey/Metallic Silver-Metallic Gold.” Both share white midsoles housing full-length Air Max units. Nike’s Swoosh logos return to their rightful place on each side in addition to the tongues. These arrive on November 23 at select Nike Sportswear and Nike.com retailers for $160 each. –HB

This version of the retro silhouette features streaks of maroon leather and metallic silver mesh across its wave-patterned upper, hits of bright blue arrive at the embroidered mini Swoosh branding, inner lining, heel pull tab and outsole accents, while a grey Air Max sole unit completes the unique color scheme. These are slated for a stateside release sometime in October at Nike’s web store. –HB


Nike Air Max 97 “Blue Hero”

Taking on a mostly tonal blue look, the upper’s signature wave panels have been crafted from a mix of bright blue leather and nylon. Elsewhere hits of black and red branding can be found, while a mini Swoosh logo sits on the toe and an Air Max strip is featured on the heel and throughout the lacing system. Finishing off the look of this “Blue Hero” AM97 iteration is a white midsole, icy blue Air bubble unit, and a white and blue outsole. Look for these at nike.com on November 19 for $160. –HB

Off-White x Nike Air Max 97 “Menta”

Following a collection dedicated to tennis superstar Serena Williams, Abloh once again places his focus on the classic AM97 silhouette. Dressed in a two-tone grey upper, the tonal look is then finished off with a tri-colored Swoosh. In terms of branding, signature Off-White™ insignias can be found inside the shoe while Abloh’s Helvetica font is featured on the medial sides and on the shoelaces. Finally the shoe is completed with a simple grey Air Max unit and clear outsole. -HB

This colorway features a leather and mesh upper in “Midnight Navy” with light blue stripes and a reflective 3M band. “Habanero Red” accents come by way of the embroidered mini Swooshes, inner lining and branded heel pull tab, while another touch visits the black outsole. A signature white Air Max sole unit lets in a visible Max Air unit in yellow for a final dose of vibrancy. These will release sometime in September for a retail price of $160. –HB
