Nike’s Air Max 97 made a glorious return last year for its 20th anniversary. Since then, the shoe’s popularity has skyrocketed, causing Nike to continue producing exciting new colorways to keep up with demand, like the “Light Bone” pair, coming soon.

The Nike Air Max 97 is one of the most sought-after Air Max sneakers of all time. Designed by Christian Tressler, the 97 created an image of speed and aerodynamics thanks to its beautiful curves and wavy lines. Now, those same smooth lines and sleek look are getting ready to launch in a new Premium iteration. For the new “Light Bone” colorway, the mesh upper of the 97 comes in a smooth off-white color. Most of the shoe’s signature wavy lines come in the same white tone, though one central section is dyed in a sandstone-like color to add some pop to the upper. The lowest layer of the upper appears to be made from some sort of reflective 3M material, with a camouflage pattern to finish it off. Finally, the new Air Max 97 colorway is finished off by sandstone-colored detailing around the tongue branding, pull tab, and outsole.


The premium new take on the Nike Air Max 97 is expected to launch sometime in June 2018. Retailing at $160, this “Light Bone” AM97 Premium will release from both Nike and select retailers. Check out the official images below for a closer look, and stay tuned to JustFreshKicks for a firm release date.
