XWHY STYLE: Return of the Max
Everybody loves a throwback and Nike are no different. They have made an art form out of refreshing and remixing past silhouettes and this Autumn is no different as 20 years on from their first release, Nike are launching a range of new colour ways of the Air Max 97. The unique, futuristic design has regularly been attributed to the look of Japanese bullet trains and subtle waves of water. However the true inspiration for the shoe’s iconic look is the clean industrial complexion of the original designers favourite mountain bike.
Complementing the return of the OG is the all new Nike Air Max 97 Ultra, which reduces the silhouettes weight and highlights its signature lines in a single layer upper. Personally, I’m all over the refresh rather than the remix but either way you can get yours from Nike.com from August.
The new colour ways of the Air Max 97 OG are available starting August 1.
The Air Max 97 OG Premium is available staring August 4.
The Air Max 97 Ultra is available starting August 17
