The full foot Air unit gets sandwiched between a crisp white midsole and outsole to cap it all off.
Joining the “Next Nature” lineup, Nike added a clean all-white sustainably made variant. To add a slight contrast to the design, the piping overlays are stitched on in a “Sail” hue with a reflective treatment for a glow-in-the-dark effect when the sun goes down.
Look out for both Air Max 97 pairs to release in the next few months at select retailers and Nike’s website.
