Nike‘s Air Max 97 has been taking the lead as the most popular model since its 20th Anniversary in 2017. After surfacing in a “Have a Nike Day” iteration, the top selling sneaker now receives a panda-inspired makeover.

Drawing ideas from the contrasting fur colors of the Chinese national heirloom, the Swoosh brand juxtaposes black and white leather stripes on the upper of the bullet train-like silhouette. The neat white sole houses the Air-assisted unit while Swooshes on the tongue tab and on midfoot round off the look of this edition.

The black and white Air Max 97 is rumoured to be released in the coming weeks on Nike.com and at select retailers. Stay tuned for more information.

In the meantime, check out the Nike Air VaporMax 2 “Oreo.”
