Earlier this fall, UNDEFEATED partnered up with Nike to commemorate the legacy of the Black Mamba with a special Kobe 5 Protro “What If” Pack, and now it’s being tapped by the Swoosh for another batch of releases involving the beloved Air Max 97. Whispers of the forthcoming partnership first started to float around during Spring 2020, but now that official imagery has emerged, consumers can likely expect a launch to occur in the near future.

The first of the two renditions is a re-release of the version that dropped exclusively at the 2017 ComplexCon, and it portrays the ever-popular “flight jacket” theme championed by the five strike brand’s Air Jordan 4 collaboration. Leather and synthetic textile uppers are primarily draped in a “Militia Green” hue, and accented by black accents that backdrop liners lateral/medial Swooshes, throat overlays, and the UNDEFEATED-branded overlay that rests above the mudguard. Additionally, splashes of “Orange Blaze” tumble onto the tongue tabs, footbed Swooshes and the outsole’s trim.

Its release sibling effectively pairs together tones that are both neutral and neon. Up top, pitch black skins swaddle the mudguards, tongues, heightened lateral/medial walls and the sock liners, all while being complemented by “Volt” branding, a “Militia Green” overlay, and silver Swooshes. Riding down under, the full-length Air Max cushioning unit is sandwiched between a white midsole piece and a two-toned black and volt outsole.

These iterations will drop exclusively online via UNDEFEATED on December 29.

For more footwear news, Nike Sportswear’s “Live Together/Play Together” Pack is dropping on December 10.
