2022 celebrates the anniversaries of several Nike classics, including the Air Force 1 and the Air Max 97. And while being less well-known than its Bruce Kilgore-designed cousin, the bullet train-inspired runner will soon get many noteworthy releases, including the return of the much-beloved “Silver Bullet.” There are also quite a few inline releases on the horizon, the most recent of which boasts a colorway beloved to sneaker culture.
This next Air Max 97 colorway is much more simplistic than some of its prior iterations, since it consists virtually completely of black-colored components. This neutral color comprises the majority of the garment’s composition, from the mesh inserts to the leather overlays. The logo, heel tab, and Air Units are covered in a silver metallic finish to complement the “Picante Red” stripe that surrounds the shoe.
For a closer look at this impending Air Max 97, see the photographs provided below. These should soon be available on Nike.com and at select shops, so please be patient.
Additionally, official photos of the Nike Kyrie 8 University Red have also emerged.
