The Nike Air Max 97 is back, whether you love it or hate it. The iconic silhouette made a grand return last year with the anniversary campaign. Now, Nike is ready to launch an updated version with a heavily-branded upper.

The Nike Air Max 97 was recently reintroduced into Nike extensive arsenal of footwear. The silhouette had disappeared for some time, but thanks to an extremely successful anniversary campaign last year, the 97 has returned to prominence, and Nike is adjusting accordingly. Last year, the AM97 first returned in several of the most sought-after original colorways. Since then, the Swoosh has expanded past their archives to update the 97 periodically with new colorways. This month, we take a look at a new all-over print for the coveted silhouette. The new-look Nike Air Max 97 begins with a triple-black base, covering just about every inch of the shoe save for red Nike branding. Then, the flare is added around the lowermost of the 97’s layered upper. A reflective black graphic wraps itself around the shoe, showing off a dense patchwork of NIKE logos.


The new Nike Air Max 97 is available now from overseas retailers like Atmos, with a stateside release expected soon. The graphic-print pair will retail for $160. Check out the official photos of the new Air Max 97, and stay tuned to JustFreshKicks for a global release date.
