After initially teasing his second Air Max 1/97 collaboration with Nike back in July, Sean Wotherspoon has revealed more of what to expect from the upcoming release. Posting on Instagram, Wotherspoon revealed a sneaker with a light blue corduroy upper, dark blue sole and yellow detailing. The sample is then finished with two mini Swooshes and a smiley-face footbed.
Wotherspoon’s caption reveals more of what to expect from the sneaker which is “still early on the sample process.” The Nike collaborator goes on to show that he is thinking of adding new color to the sole, changing the sock liner to yellow and making the air bubble infrared. Other potential changes include changing the upper color from just light blue to a gradient effect from light blue to dark blue. As it stands, there is no news on when the final version will be revealed but keep an eye out over the coming months.
In other Nike news, take a look at the Air Span II in “Black/Yellow/Wolf Grey.”

First peek at the second wave! Still early on the sample process, and there’s a lot that’s going to change! I’m thinking add some color to the sole, make that air bubble infrared, gotta change the sock liner to yellow, maybe a new color insole?!, fix the denim on the tabs, and do a gradient from light to dark blue instead of all light blue?!? What new patches should I include with this pair?! I couldn’t be happier holding these babies in my hand, can’t wait to see the final sample! So much more dope Nike shit to talk about, can’t wait to tell everyone! ???? @nikesportswear @nike
