It's the return of the holy grail. One of the most iconic sneakers ever made is making its way into Soleheavens pearly gates.
The Air Max 97 'Silver Bullet' are a divine looking pair of kicks, taking inspiration and visual cues from the high-speed bullet trains in Japan, the sleek, streamline design holds a completely unique aesthetic which has seen the Silver Bullets become an instant fan favourite of the sneakerhead world since releasing back in 97, even back then these sneaks were futuristic in both design and ergonomics and to this date they still hold these qualities.
Boasting a metallic silver upper which perfectly reflects the decade it was created in where the year 2000 was fast approaching and there was a large push in the technology industry. The state of the art performance still holds to this date with the air unit running through the whole outsole giving maximum comfort and bounce with each step. With that that said, Nike has taken this 97 release to the next level by adding some contemporary upgrades. Rocking no-sew mesh material hits much of the upper for lightweight and breathable comfort. The signature ‘Tape’ overlays offer additional support but it’s that full length white coloured midsole which steals the show. Fitted with a visible Air Unit, it doesn’t get more iconic than this.
These aren't going to be around for long at all due to them being a quick strike release which means numbers are limited, mixed with the hyped nature around this release. You are going to have to be fast if you want to cop this heat.
Releasing online only tomorrow at 08:00 am GMT 13/14/17
