Nike continues to find different ways to keep things interesting when it comes to the Air Max 97 as today we bring you a look at another new colorway. Starting off with a clean white upper, this Air Max 97 comes constructed out of the traditional mesh and leather build. Next we have Black and University Red detailing on the overlays as well as throughout the shoe. Small repetitive “nike” branding is placed on the signature wavy overlays along with new Nike graphic branding above the lateral midsole. Black on the inner liner and heel tab with red Nike branding, a white midsole with a red full-length Air Max unit, and a black and white rubber outsole finish things off.
While it hasn’t been announced as an official partnership yet, it’s clear that this latest variation of the Nike Air Max 97 is inspired by the classic Nintendo 64 video game console, which actually debuted a year prior (1996). Reflective of the game system’s signature colors, the runner flaunts a light grey mesh upper with matching leather overlays, while pops of green, blue, red, and yellow across evoke the buttons found on the N64 gaming controller.
Check out this new colorway of the Nike Air Max 97. This time around the Swoosh comes dressed in a Black leather and mesh upper complimented by even more Black noted on the laces, lining and pull tabs. The star of the shoe is the multicolored stitching done in Yellow, Green, Purple, and Pink. Completing the look of the shoe is the White midsole and Black rubber outsole.
