Military makes a comeback this year with Nike’s Air Max 97 Ultra ‘17 model getting a flight jacket makeover. Like the popular bomber outerwear, this design sees olive green and orange, usually the colors of the jacket’s outer fabric and lining, respectively.

There are also slight digi-camo hits on the upper as well as diagonal stripes for a more textured look. As per usual, we get a mini Swoosh on the sides, full Air Max unit at the soles and logos at the tongue. For a bit of night-time flair, the uppers boast reflective features.

No word yet on an official release date but word has it that they will be arriving soon at participating retailers with a price tag around $160 USD.

In other Nike Air Max news, check out the release date for the VaporMax Premier Flyknit in black/silver.
