The Nike Air Max 97 continues appearing in brand new styles despite no longer celebrating its 25th anniversary. For its latest ensemble, the iconic design has taken on a “Gym Red” finish complete with satin details.
At quick glance, Christian Tresser’s creation from 1997 maintains a build comparable to the original, but closer inspection reveals otherwise. Panels underneath the signature vamp overlays take on a glossy fabric material instead of standard breathable mesh. Like the nearby leather vamp overlays, the satin components take on a bold “Gym Red” finish that’s only interrupted by one “White” layer wrapped around the entire upper and miniature swooshes at the sides. Labels on the tongue, pull tabs around the collar, and inner lining prefer a pitch “Black” look. Lastly, the Air Max and foam cushioning underfoot opts for a mostly “colorless” arrangement that allows for the “Red Satin” styling above to shine in the spotlight.
No firm nike.com launch details have been disclosed yet, but that’s likely to change soon. In the meantime, enjoy official images of the pair ahead.
