Nike‘s catalog is home to some of the most iconic sneaker offerings that the industry has ever seen, especially when it comes to its ever-growing Air Max lineage. And one iteration that many sneakerheads across the globe covet is the iconic Air Max 97 “Silver Bullet.” The cult classic last saw a release back in 2017, but it’s ready to retro again and it’s 2022 variation has just now been officially revealed.

Given that 2022 marks the 25th anniversary of the Swoosh silhouette, it only makes sense that one of its most iconic colorways be brought back to the forefront. The Christian Tresser-designed installment is being reincarnated with all of its OG design cues. Metallic silver lines its mudguards and wavy lines, the latter of which are inspired by Japan’s bullet trains. Small notes of black adorn the oval tongue badges and interior liners while pops of red poke out through the Swoosh logos and heel tabs. White midsoles are positioned down below and house its full see-through Air unit.

Early reports have these slated to drop on November 11 for $180 USD, but Nike and other retailers haven’t confirmed this just yet.

In case you missed it, the Nike ISPA Sense Flyknit has been officially revealed.
