Nike recently unveiled a new iteration of its Air VaporMax 97 model, applying a bold summer-friendly palette to the hybrid runner. Closely following the clean “Metallic Cashmere” makeover spotted last month, the new rework gives way to a striking tonal mashup, including such statement hues as “Metallic Silver,” “Varsity Purple,” “Aqua” and “Persian Violet,” along with ample does of white found along the upper and tongue.

Rounding out the new rendition is the Swoosh branding found on the side and tongue areas, in addition to the heel pull tab and signature VaporMax sole unit, all of which highlight some shade of purple. The new Nike Air VaporMax 97 “Varsity Purple” is priced at $190 USD and can be found at select retailers on June 21.
