Images of a Nintendo 64-inspired Nike Air Max 97 have just surfaced. Taking cues from the nostalgic gaming console from the ’90s, this latest colorway sees its uppers done in mostly silver/grey — a nod towards to color of the original controllers — and then is taken a step further with colorful accents. Green and blue piping circle the sneaker as a reference to the “A” and “B” buttons, while the tongue trim and Swoosh logo see red; this represents the “Start” button. Nike hasn’t forgotten about the C-buttons as the buttons’ bright yellow hue can be found in the sole’s air unit while triangular shapes make their way onto the mudguard.

Further details include “Power” and “Reset” embroidery at the tongue, an ESRB rating logo on the insole, and “AirMax” printed in Nintendo typeface at the heel. There’s no official news from Nike just yet but stay tuned as these are rumored to drop soon for a price of $160 USD.
