Following in the footsteps of the Nike Air Max 97 “Neon,” the new Air Max 97 “Royal” has also borrowed a colorway motif from a past throwback model. While the “Neon” colorway mimicked the Air Max 95, Nike’s latest Air Max 97 has repurposed a colorway originally found on the Air Max 1, with this classic blue “Royal” color scheme.

The homage paid to the original Air Max sneaker is clear for all to see on this Air Max 97, including a blue bottom panel with white and silver completing the remainder of the upper. Although price and release date have yet to be announced, be sure to keep it locked for upcoming details as they become available.
