In celebration of the 50th Anniversary of the Nike Swoosh logo, Nike’s “First Use” collection celebrated the origin of the Swoosh which will now include the Air Max 97. 

To go along with a handful of different silhouettes, Nike will be adding the Air Max 97 to the mix with a “First Use” rendition set to join the collection. Featuring a mixture of mesh, leather, and suede across the upper, Bone covers the entire silhouette in an off-white tone. Repeated Nike branding is added to the wave-like overlay in red and blue which matches the side paneled Nike Swoosh logo, lacing system, tongue label, and Air Max unit. A gold lace dubrae graces the blue laces while a white rubber midsole and outsole finish off the brand new offering.


The Nike Air Max 97 “First Use” will be launching soon in the coming weeks via select Nike retailers and for a retail price of $170. While the rendition is a part of the 50th Anniversary collection, it also provides a great 4th of the July shoe so don’t sleep if you’re interested in copping. As always, stay tuned for updates and more of the latest sneaker news.
