Nike continues to mashup some of its most popular sneakers from both retro and new categories, this time fusing the Air Max 97 upper with the VaporMax bubble sole. The latest hybrid model was recently teased in Nike’s star-studded Air Max Day 2018 lineup. It dons an Air Max 97 OG “Japan” colorway which features a wavy black and grey upper with a translucent neon green bubble sole. This latest look comes courtesy of  Twitter user @psycho__1111.
