DescriptionFusing the Air Max BW upper with a full length Air Max 97 sole unit, the Air Max 97/BW Metallic Silver Violet features a shiny silver leather and mesh upper, a white 3M reflective strip above the mudguard, black textile accents at the ankle, an indigo rubber Swoosh, and Air Max branding at the heel. To round it all off, the AM97â€™s sole unit is painted in a retro white, black, and grey colour scheme.
The year was 1997 and visible Air had just reached the toe for the first time. Sitting atop the largest cushion of Air the world had seen was the sleek silver of a bullet train. The Air Max 97 BW takes the 1997 Air unit and throws it back to Tinker Hatfield’s 1991 Air Max Classic BW, in a mashup for the ages.
