Sleek in its stylings, sturdy in its construction, and still sought-after the world over more than 20 years after it first released, the Air Max 97 is a key part of Nike’s lifestyle lineup, and it’s now released in a new “Bred”-style colorway with a few alternate embellishments. The upper’s black mesh base is promptly coated with a plentiful plethora of accents, ranging from a pebbled black leather mudguard to swooping red and black side stripes. Traveling farther up the bullet-train inspired upper, the top two striped overlays are dressed in a stark reflective silver that ensures low-light visibility, while the black throat offers both red and silver detailing. Red heel and tongue tabs ensure easy on/easy off, and down below a black midsole, red Air Max unit, and red/black outsole finalize the look. A lot of Chicago Bulls and a little bit of “Silver Bullet,” these potent 97s are available now at Nike.com for an even $160 USD.
