As 2023’s release schedule starts to materialize, Nike looks to have its sights set on the Air Max 97 as a key model of interest. As 2022 has served as the 25th anniversary of the silhouette, the Swoosh is finishing its celebration with a retro of the classic “Silver Bullet” look. Supporting this, the complementary “Gold Bullet” look is expected to hit shelves in 2023.

First spotted in 1999 and last released in 2018, the “Gold Bullet” treatment stays true to its original form. “Metallic Gold/Varsity Red/White/Black” is the listed color palette with a mesh base covered by matching gold leather overlays as the focal point. While the colors seem brighter than 2018’s release, it is uncertain whether or not there will be a difference in hand. Additional detailing includes reflective highlights throughout the upper, a full-length visible Nike Air-infused midsole and “Varsity Red” branding elements.

A specific release date for the re-release of the Nike Air Max 97 “Gold Bullet” has yet to surface. Look for it to hit shelves via Nike and select retailers during Spring 2023 at a price of $185 USD.

Elsewhere in the world of footwear, a Nike spokesperson has informed Hypebeast that the Swoosh is not planning to raise the prices on Dunk models.
