Nike Air Max 97 “Metallic Gold/Black” DX0137-700

Although the sneaker world has been eagerly anticipating the Nike Air Max 97 to return to its original “Silver Bullet” shape for its 25th anniversary, causal and savvy fans were treated to a number of new styles from Christian’s iconic design. Braid.

Recently, the full-length bubble wrap silhouette emerged in a two-tone ‘Metallic Gold’ and ‘Black’ ensemble. Reminiscent of Foamposite’s Air Force 1 High proposals from the 2010s, the newly remade pair features various shades of luxurious Gold on its upper, simultaneously evoking the “Gold Bullet” colorway which is also expected to return soon. The stark “Black” contrast then takes over the tongue, inner lining and underfoot sole, including the Air Max solution. Finally, vamp overlays and tongue detailing complement the drop-friendly grip with reflective finishes that help the 1997 design make a statement even in poorly lit situations.

Enjoy official images of the pair ahead and anticipate a Nike.com release before the end of the year.
