Much of the attention these days where Air Max sneakers are concerned revolve around the 20th anniversary Air Max 98 and the newly released Air Max 270. But lovers of the Air Max 97 are never lost on a great pair, and this upcoming “Safety Orange” could reside in that space for many.
Dressed in full monotone upper with that same hue glowing through the full-length Visible Air unit, the shoe’s only true offset is traditional white midsole tooling and a black outer. And while this isn’t close to an OG Air Max 97 colorway, orange is a trending shade thus giving this shoe some extra cultural lift.
Look for this Nike Air Max 97 “Safety Orange” sometime in April.
