Does the Nike Air Max 97 Premium look familiar? Although this is a brand-new style for the coveted range, it’s not a brand-new colourway. In fact, Nike borrow an identical theme from one of the first Air Max 1s to ever release. Otherwise known as ‘Anniversary Blue’ thanks to the more recent re-release during the Air Max Day celebrations, this pair is about as iconic as it gets.
That signature shade of Black covers a leather crafted mudguard with travels the full length of the shoe. The exact same colourway is utilised for the Air Unit underfoot which contrasts against a white coloured midsole.
The upper of the shoe is balanced out with hits of white and the wavy construct of the Air Max 97 is retained. Purple adds another daring sheen that comes to life when hit with light. It’s 3M reflective piping which means you can be assured of that head-turning glow.
The Nike Air Max 97 Premium is finished off with a soft crafted tongue and a set of Black laces. OG AM97 branding also comes stamped throughout.
