In celebration of 2021’s National Puerto Rican Day, Nike will be taking their Air Max 97 and will be applying a Puerto Rico theme to the classic silhouette. 

Officially releasing in Metallic Silver and Varsity Red, no leaked images have surfaced for the 2021 release, but we expect a full Metallic Silver mesh and leather upper that is highlighted with Varsity Red wave-like overlays, Nike Swoosh branding on the side paneling and tongue along with the expected Puerto Rico flag on the ankles. A white midsole, silver Air Max unit, and a black rubber outsole finishes off the future makeover. With the special makeover on the classic sneaker, expect many to be out to get a pair.


The Nike Air Max 97 “Puerto Rico” will be dropping Summer of 2021 via select Nike retailers and for a retail price of $175. Enjoy the mock-up below while we wait for more details regarding first look images, release details, and other updates.
