Metallic gold is a classic look for the Nike Air Max 97. However, this is not the OG metallic gold color blocking from 1997. This application of metallic gold offers a tonal look that is only broken up with black on the lining and red “air max” lettering on the heel.
Nike probably made the colorway to coincide with the cancelled Summer Olympics that was originally scheduled to take place in Tokyo this year. The kicks recently dropped and are now live on nike.com US for $180.
Remastered from the OG that shook up the running world, the Nike Air Max 97 elevates the classic design with metallic gold finishes. Its revolutionary full-length Nike Air unit is as comfortable as the day it was released.
The full-length Nike Air cushioning combines with the soft foam midsole for unbelievable comfort all day long.
Mesh and synthetic materials on the upper maintain the classic look while delivering new, flashy colors.
Rubber sole adds durability and traction.
