Last year’s release calendars were filled with such an abundance of Air Max 97 colorways that we even put the beloved silhouette on our list of 5 sneakers we don’t want to see anymore in 2018. But of course this didn’t stop Nike from putting out further AM97 hybrids this year. Next up is a combination of the fan-favorite OG “Silver Bullet” 97 upper that is set atop a VaporMax sole unit.
In theory, the combination of two futuristic Nike sneakers from different decades absolutely makes sense. But especially pairing the “Silver Bullet” with a model that’s as controversial as the VaporMax probably won’t be appreciated by everyone.
You can take a first look at the “Metallic Silver/Varsity Red-White/Black” colorway above and decide for yourself if you’re down with this Air Max 97 makeover.
