Five Upcoming Nike Air Max 97 Releases to Watch

 In News

The Nike Air Max 97 Ultra ’17 Skepta officially had the sneaker scene shut down. But not everyone managed to get their hands on a pair of the coveted shoes at stores or via the SNEAKRS App.

There’s no need to worry, because even without the Skepta-endorsed kicks, there are plenty of hot Nike Air Max 97 releases coming up in the wake of the 20th anniversary that will put some heat on your feet for fall season. Here are our five favorites to watch out for:

Undefeated x Nike Air Max 97 

This one’s gonna go quickly as well. Undefeated puts its stylistic touches on the Nike Air Max 97 OG headed for a September 21 release with a $180 price tag. It makes a strong statement with a bold black upper with glossy detailing on the patent leather mudguards and the UNDEFEATED logo in the stripes and branding on the insole, and tongue pull-tab. Hot!

Nike Air Max 97 Black/Volt

Taking it back to the sporty roots of the Nike Air Max 97, the Black/Volt colorway is bound to be a favorite among fans of the original. Headed for an early September release, it features the 3M layered upper, full-length air unit and the little swoosh for a €169.95 price tag. Available from retailers including 43einhalb.

Nike Air Max 97 Premium Light Pumice/Summit White

This one is a nice break from the darker, heavier-looking iterations of the Air Max 97 dropping these days. Rendered in Premium Light Pumice/Summit White, the shoe seems lighter and more athletic. This 20th anniversary edition also features a suede-mesh upper and a classic white midsole. Releases on September 9 at retailers including Politics and BSTN.

Nike Air Max 97 Atlantic Blue

Another athletic throwback to the 1990s, the Atlantic Blue has all the ingredients that made the OG Nike Air Max 97 a classic. The lush Atlantic Blue detailing on the streamlined upper pairs nicely with color pops on the Air bubble and the “little Swoosh” in yellow.

Nike Air Max 97 Premium Deep Pewter

Fall season is a great opportunity to add some warmth to the 20th anniversary line-up. This is exactly what Nike Sportswear is doing with the Air Max 97 Premium in Deep Pewter. It introduces an elegant color scheme with a Cool Grey wool upper, contrasted by carefully chosen leather colorways. No release date yet, but definitely another one to keep on the radar if you didn’t get those Skepta’s.
