Nike Dresses Its Air Max 97 in an All-New "Oxidized" Colorway
Featuring reflective 3M details.
As one of the Swooshes’ most popular silhouettes, the 97 has been blessed with a slew of general release colorways. Some stand-outs from recent times come in the form of the reissued “Silver Bullet” for a cleaner example, while more experimental additions — such as the “Kiss My Air” version — have ticked the box for those looking for something slightly different.
With this in mind, Nike’s new “Oxidized” version of the 97 falls under the brand’s more experimental umbrella. The “Oxidized” tones and detailing hit the mudguards, while the rest of the construction is taken over by mesh and leather throughout the upper. Additionally, the shoe also features a “Teal” mesh base on the upper with “Copper/Brown” leather overlays.
The stand-out feature of the shoe, however, is the “Copper” 3M reflective detailing. In addition to this, further “Teal” and “Copper” branding is spotted on the tongue and heel, while the midsole is covered in “Sail” and a brown rubber outsole finishes off the look.
You can take a closer look at the new Air Max 97 “Oxidized” above and it will be available to purchase via the official Nike website and with select retailers in the coming weeks.
