Following a special-edition “M. Frank Rudy” iteration celebrating the creator of Nike Air cushioning, Nike now serves up another take on its signature Air Max 97 silhouette. Taking inspiration from the Koi fish, a symbol of love, harmony, and prosperity, the upcoming pairs are found in a clean two-tone white and gold colorway.

Uppers are found in a mix of leather and mesh, with a wraparound suede mudguard and wavy 3M striped panels. Fish scale motifs are teased on the midfoot cutouts and tongue tabs while Air Max-branded nylon pull tabs are secured on the heels. Rounding out the design are lifelike Koi fish graphics printed on the insoles, full-length Air Bubble midsoles, and semitranslucent milky rubber outsoles.

Take an official look at the Nike Air Max 97 “Koi” above and look for the pairs to arrive in the coming weeks at Nike’s website and select retailers.
