Nike adds the Air Max 97 to their latest tie-dye collection, which also includes the Air Force 1 Low, releasing for the summer.
Summertime calls for bright colors and bold patterns, so Nike has equipped the ever-popular Air Max 97 with a new tie-dye makeup, complete with details that nod to the city of Chicago. The upper’s base features a vivid multicolor print that utilizes bright sherbert tones for an airbrush-style look.
This offering of the Nike Air Max 97 features a tie-dye canvas underlay with White leather overlays. Red stitched Swoosh logos, a White midsole atop an icy translucent outsole completes the design. Much like the AF1, these also come with the peace motif on the tongues and skyline logo stamped on the insole as a nod to Chicago.
Meanwhile, the bullet train-inspired overlays and mudguard are dressed in a stark white for contrast. The aforementioned Chicago-inspired details then arrive via a powder blue/red city flag-style Nike print on the insole, a blue peace sign overlaid with a red Swoosh on the tongue, and a soft blue/red heel tab. Down below, things are kept light and lovely with a white midsole, silver Air Max cushioning unit, and an icy blue translucent outsole. These whimsical-yet-meaningful Nike shoes will release alongside a similarly-styled Air Force 1 Low on Nike.com in the coming weeks, so enjoy a full set of official images directly below while you wait.
