With the Air Max from 1997, Nike launched a continuously visible Air sole for the first time. A premiere for the brand that should not be forgotten in retrospect. You can find out more facts about the sneaker classic and where and when you can buy the Air Max 97 below. In this overview you will also find a list of all current and soon available models:
The first colorway the world saw for the 97 at its launch was monochrome silver. Small accents of black, white and red, were to round out the design. The first AM97 was dubbed the Silver Bullet – after the silver-colored high-speed trains from the Asian region. According to the designer in charge, Christian Tresser, other references also played a role. The round lines on the upper, for example, were inspired by drops of water that land in a pond and make very small waves.
In addition to collabos with Skepta, Off-White, UNDFTD and the like, there are also very strong regular colorways on the 97. You could almost argue that you could buy a matching pair of these sneakers to go with any of your outfits. Just scroll through retailers’ online stores and see which available color combos suit you best.
As we know, the 97 is a sneaker from the brand with the swoosh, which is why it is obvious to look for the sneaker in the Nike online store. Furthermore, you can also buy the Air Max 97 in other stores and that to enough. You can find different models on the net, which can come in very different colorways. Here and there there is even a small selection in the sale – if you are lucky, you can also find some in your size. For this, you should just check out the usual suspects like Snipes, JD Sports, Afew, Overkill or Asphaltgold and see which styles are currently on sale there.
