The Nike Air Max 97, a sneaker with a design that has stood the test of time for over 25 years, continues to surprise and excite sneakerheads with its innovative reimaginations. The latest rendition comes in the form of the “Malachite” colorway, injecting a vibrant green hue into the iconic Christian Tresser design.
With a predominantly near-white finish, the “Photon Dust” color takes center stage on the upper, encompassing elements such as the smooth leather mudguard, midsole, laces, and mesh tongue construction. Adding a touch of contrast, the “Obsidian” accents make their presence known on the mesh base layer, giving a slivered appearance that perfectly complements the mid-foot cut-out, heel tab, and inner lining. But the real star of the show is the monochromatic exoskeleton, featuring a striking green hue on the tongue tab, profile swoosh, and a singular TPU strip.
As the first model in the Max Air family to feature a full-length air unit, the Nike Air Max 97 “Malachite/Photon Dust” takes it up a notch with a classic gum treatment on the tread. Additionally, the toe-to-heel cushioning system receives a vibrant green dye, truly making a statement.
Take a closer look at the Nike Air Max 97 “Malachite/Photon Dust” below, and stay tuned for further release details. In the meantime, don’t miss out on the recent sighting of the Book 1 “Cool Grey” from the Beaverton brand.
