We first took a look at this Nike Air Max 97 iteration a couple of weeks back and are back to revisit the same tonal black model, this time armed with additional images and a firm release date to report. Dressed in a “Metallic Hematite” color scheme, the throwback runner features a somber core black palette with subtle splashes of red landing on the outsole, heel tab and inner Swoosh branding. The metallic detailing found on the upper, not only benefits nighttime run sessions, but stylistically differentiates itself from previous AM97 all-black drops seen earlier this year.
Although price has still yet to be confirmed, the Nike Air Max 97 “Metallic Hematite” is bound for an online release come January 6. Stay tuned for future updates. In other Nike news, the Swoosh adds a Japanese yen-themed Air More Money to the upcoming “Global Currency” pack.
