The Air VaporMax 97 “Japan” first hit our pages a few weeks back, as initial teaser images of the eye-catching AM97/VaporMax hybrid starting surfacing in late January. With its impending drop scheduled for later this week, new on-feet images have since made its rounds online, which we will now take a look at.

Reminiscent of the Japan-exclusive OG Air Max 97 colorway, the new rendition, too, spotlights a predominantly black tonal palette, with “Volt,” silver and white accents scattered throughout, while the 3M reflective trim balances out the new design. Set to a price tag of $190 USD, you can find the Nike Air VaporMax 97 “Japan” at select Nike stockists and online as of March 9.

In other Swoosh-related news, Nike’s Air Zoom Mariah Flyknit Racer cleans up in “Pure Platinum.”
