Nike announces a new release. A sneaker we don't see often anymore, but still a big favourite. This time the leopard print is added to the Nike Air Max 97. The WMNS release has light shades and is super cool because of the crazy print.
In 1997, the Air Max 97 was launched. The model was designed by Christian Tresser. The very first colorway on this model was the 'Silver Bullet'. Throughout the years, we have seen this colorway coming back on the Air Max 97. The model was the first Nike sneaker to have the 'Air Unit' over the entire sole. The sole does not only look cool, it also makes the sneaker extra comfortable. The Air Max 97 has seen many colorways. This time it is the leopard print that makes our hearts beat faster.
Nike Air Max 97 'Leopard'
This time, the iconic Air Max 97 has a cream tinted upper. The sneaker consists of multiple layers. The upper is primarily made of mesh, while the lower layer is made of suede. The beloved leopard print is most evident on this part, but is further seen across the entire upper. The cream colour is found on the outsole. The midsole is white. As a final detail, the branding and Mini-Swoosh are embroidered with orange thread. Photos of the Air Max 97 'Leopard' can be found at the bottom of this blog.
We unfortunately don't have a release date for this sneaker yet. But we expect the Air Max 97 to drop in the first half of 2021. Perfectly in time to rock the sneakers in the spring! Keep an eye on our release calendar, so you will not miss any sneaker release. Also this Air Max 97 'Leopard' will soon be available there, together with all its shops!
