Round Two‘s Sean Wotherspoon and his contest-winning Air Max 1/97 sneaker saw a hyperstrike release back in November, but the “Vote Forward” hybrid is seeing its official re-release through the SNKRS app.
For those unaware, the Sean Wotherspoons are a hybrid mashup of an Air Max 1 sole unit with an Air Max 97 upper to create the aptly titled AM1/97. The outer is clad with a harlequin pattern of corduroy materials that contrasts against the white midsole, but continue the rainbow motif on the quad-colored outsole. The initial drop sold out in seconds, leaving the sneaker to reach grail status in availability and resale pricing, but this re-release will surely both appease and frustrate collectors, depending on how they’ll utilize them.
Look for the Sean Wotherspoon x Nike Air Max 1/97 to release on the SNKRS app March 26 at 10 a.m. EDT and keep an eye out for them for Nike’s upcoming Air Max Day. While you’re waiting, another hybrid is making its way onto retail shelves: the Nike Air VaporMax Plus.
