The Nike Air Max 97 has made a significant comeback with the resurgence of its “Silver Bullet” edition a few months back. After a few restocks of the aforementioned iteration, the Swoosh moved on to raise the bar with a “Metallic Gold” edition. Nike’s latest drop of the Air Max 97 presents a sense of nostalgia for those who were fans of the model during its first introduction while giving the newer generation a silhouette to admire.

In honor of the colorway’s recent launch, we’ve gather some of its best shots on Instagram. Take a look below and let us know which one is your favorite.

The phrase “You have too many sneakers” doesn’t exist in the mind of a true sneaker enthusiast.
