The best of ’97

1997 is a great year for the Swoosh. This particular year produced a number of iconic sneakers: the Air Max 97 and Air Foamposite One to name a few. Being a great year, Nike thought that it is a good idea to merge the design elements of these two legacy sneakers. The result? An Air Max 97 that looks like an Air Foamposite One.

For this upcoming model, the Air Max 97 has a black mesh upper, along with a shiny Royal Blue mudguard that resembles a Foamposite shell. The side panels mimic the look of a carbon fiber plate, while the translucent outsole is another reference to the Air Foamposite One’s key elements.

The Air Max 97 “Foamposite” is expected to drop in the coming weeks.
