Spring is soon to Sprung and so, too, is Nike’s same-named collection. And to complement the Air Max 95s revealed prior, the brand is adding to the roster a similarly-designed Nike Air Max 97 Men/Women. While an ode to the season ahead, the colorway is primarily comprised of neutrals. “Sail” tints quite a bit of the paneling, adding an aged feel to the textured leathers and suedes.
The same holds true as the Nike Air Max Coming in 2022 joins the pack, its bullet train inspired design stripped down to an all-white colorway. Unlike the black-dominant offerings prior, the Air Max 97 opts for a look far more clean.

But along the piping, which runs from one end of the shoe to the other, the pair makes use of “Sail,” subtly highlighting every fixture treated with a reflective finish.
Like the AF1, the Nike Air Max 97 Online is dressed in a soft, Spring-appropriate palette. “Sail” is used heavily across both suede and mesh, amplifying the custom details added atop. This is why you instantly notice the embroideries along the side, which proffer not just a blacked out Swoosh but also a peace-signing hand and elegant “Just do it” text. Adjacent, the pink and reddish orange panels stand out similarly, the latter of which complements the heel tab as well as the lipstick-covered mouth that outfits the tongue/insole.
Mesh and synthetic leather materials throughout the upper indulges in a greyscale arrangement that loosely harkens back to the model’s inaugural “Silver Bullet” style. New Nike Air Max 97 Vamp overlays closest to the pair’s mudguard introduce iridescent flair into the mix. “Metallic Silver” across the profiles and tongue proffer further contrast, while Air Max units underfoot opt for a “colorless” look that complements the midsole’s foam component. Lastly, the tread opts for a light grey makeup that rounds out the greyscale proposition.
The Air Jordan 4 is among the trendier options, with the Military Blue 4s and Bred 4s appearing in sport-ready mode, but the Buy Nike Air Max 97 is where the brand really put emphasis on with its quirky designs. Dropping during weather-appropriate climates is this Air Max 97 featuring zebra-patterned hair uppers, paired with a stark black treatment on the racing stripes, inner lining, and green-ready outsole. A white midsole and Air bag complete the look.
