As one would expect, this “Leopard Tongue” look begins with the base of the tongue carrying a leopard print while a Swoosh in red rests on black and white patches at the top. Beyond this bold inclusion, the upper of the shoe works with the Air Max 97’s layered look by utilizing various colors and materials. White leather and mesh combines with gold corduroy and olive leather to complete the upper. Rounding out the detailing of this pair is an off-white midsole resting atop a black outsole.
No release information regarding the Air Max 97 “Leopard Tongue” has surfaced yet. However, it is expected to hit shelves soon via Nike and select retailers.
In other news from the Swoosh, official images of two more Union LA x Nike Cortez colorways have surfaced.
