The Nike Air Max 97 celebrated 20 years in 2017. The brainchild of designer Christian Tresser, the Air Max 97 was inspired by BMX bikes and adopted features from the Air Zoom Spiridon. It gained it's nickname 'Silver Bullet' as it's sleek lines and reflective properties were akin to Japan's lighting fast trains. It's signature and original iterations were constructed of a metallic coated leather and synthetic mesh with reflective 3M piping. The Air Max 97 features a hidden eyelet lacing system while embroidered Swoosh branding keeps things focused on the Swoosh. Underfoot, a full-length PU enclosed visible Air system of cushioning exists with 3 chambers providing comfort and support to the forefoot, arch and heel. Complete with a ribbon heel loop, this speed demon personified Nike's maximum Air Max in the year 1997 and more. Shop the men's and women's Air Max 97 online and below.
