Nike’s Air Max 97 “Gold Bullet” is one of the most coveted Air sneakers of all time. After the massively popular retro release last year, Nike is bringing the colorway into 2018 with a new Air Max Gold Collection.


Nike’s legendary “Metallic Gold” was first introduced on the Air Max 97 as an original colorway. The silhouette, designed by Christian Tressler, was a huge success in Europe due to its chunky, yet sleek and aerodynamic lines. With the addition of a shining gold color scheme, the 97 took off and is still one of the most sought-after Nike sneakers to this day. Last year, the Swoosh celebrated the twentieth anniversary of the Air Max 97, an impressive milestone by any design standards. Despite its return last year, the “Gold Bullet” is making another appearance in 2018. Releasing in both men’s and women’s sizing, the AM97 will accompany the gold Air Max Plus in launching the brand’s golden iteration of the new Nike Vapormax 97.

With so many great options releasing, it’s going to be difficult to pick a favorite. The Nike Air Max 97 “Gold Bullet” is one of the most identifiable sneakers of all time, and the addition of Vapormax to the sleek look is quite intriguing. Additionally, the Nike Air Max Plus is looking it’s best with a metallic finish and traditional red Swoosh accents.
