Offering up what could easily be understood as a very subtle remix of the OG "Silver Bullet" Air Max 97, the kitchens of Beaverton have given us this premium riff on the Air Max 97 dripping in "Reflect Silver" with contrast provided by "Pure Platinum," "Wolf Grey," black, and red. This iteration has all the details AM97 connoisseurs appreciate about this silhouette in an even more restrained look than usual; full length airbag, Japanese bullet train-inspired ripples, the use of leather and mesh on the upper, and instead of using red on the Swoosh and tongue, Nike's taken it to the heel and outsole. Overall, an extremely clean, impeccably executed rework on a classic, and a solid addition to the Air Max family's history and lineage.
The Nike Air Max 97 Premium "Reflect Silver" is available at the shop or online. Stop by 147 W 72nd ST on the UWS this weekend to grab your pair.
