The Nike Air Max 97 had had quite the year thus far, receiving a drove of new styles right in time for the Spring/Summer. Soon even USA colors will dress the silhouette, doing so in advance of Independence Day.

Compared to the sneaker’s past nods to the United States, this upcoming Nike Air Max 97 incorporates the good ol’ red, white, and blue in a slightly different way. Navy blues are used to a much greater effect here, dressing not only the mesh base and tongue but also the laces, the outsole, and the leather piping across the shoe’s top line. Red, then, complements along the adjacent trims and branding, while white rounds out the colorway via the midsole and mudguard.

Enjoy a closer look at this USA-inspired Nike Air Max 97 via the official images ahead. While a release date has not yet been confirmed, it likely won’t be long before we see pairs on and at select retailers.


This edition of the Air Max 97 color coordinates with the Union Jack, Tricolour and Stars and Stripes. The kicks are expected to be in rotation this summer, ready for cookouts, parades and firework spectacles.
