Again, Nike employs the Air Max 97’s layered upper strategically, slipping from one shade to another with ease. The mixed material build begins with suede and includes leather and mesh as it reaches up to its collar. 3M reflectivity makes a return on the silhouette while its titular “Light Silver” is backed by soft green hues throughout. Small Swooshes and Air Max branding appear throughout the upper with the Air-infused sole unit completing the look in additional shades of dusty green.
As of now, a release date for the Nike Air Max 97 “Light Silver” has not been disclosed by the Swoosh. It’s expected to launch in women’s sizing by the end of the year at a price of $180 USD via Nike and select retailers worldwide.
