The streamlined upper, the characteristic lacing and the discreet swoosh – shortly before the millennium, Nike presented the Air Max 97. Inspired by the Japanese high-speed train Shinkansen, the Air Max 97 embossed the youth of all of us and lighted up our eyes.
The legendary sneaker still features the 3m layered upper, full-length air unit and the little swoosh.
With the 2019 NBA-All Star Game in Charlotte set to tip off in just over two weeks, the anticipation surrounding the annual celebration of the league’s best and brightest is growing rapidly. And that aforementioned anticipation is not just for the game: it’s for the shoes as well.
This time, the Nike designer present a jersey-styled Air Max 97. Calling upon the classic white, blue, and red palette that’s become linked with the star-filled exhibition over decades past, this AM97 uses a white jersey-style material as the base to leave no doubts about its uniform-themed inspiration. Bright red and blue accents then appear on the upper’s swooping lines, the tongue, and the tri-colored heel tab.
