Instant Classic: Nike Air Max 97 Black/Psychic Purple & White/Multi-Color
The historic Nike Air Maz 97 gained two more colorways. Following the release of the tye-die-clad Air Force 1 ’07 Premium, Nike decided to give the Air Max 97 a makeover with psychedelic accents over a black or white base color. These colorways debuted August 4, 2019 – and instantly became a classic.
The black and psychic purple pattern is lined with stealthy black side panels, tonal tongue with a thin pull tab. Half-way up the shoe are the tie-dye mudguards. This also covers the lower half of the sneaker, toe cap and rear quarter of the shoe. The white multicolor colorway is the inverse of the black and psychic purple. The tie-dye pattern starts from the top of the shoe with crips white panels. At the top of the tongue, there is a blue peace sign and splashes of fluorescent pigments that extend to the forefoot. Both of these color schemes have a translucent midsole. This puts balance to the mixture of hues. The Nike Air Max 97 is being sold at around $180 at most stores.
The Nike Air Max was released in the fall of 1997. The popularity of the Air Max was very high in Japan and Europe, so Nike tried to push new models and colorways out the door as much as possible. New colorways were based on different mountain bike patterns. The Nike Air Max 97’s are said to be eye-catching and reliability comfortable. They are able to last and be your everyday shoe or as a shoe show from the multiple color options. The timeless sneakers are wavy, bold and stunning – and much more than just another pair of Nikes.
