Nike Air Max 97 Coming with Black Olive and Orange Arrangement Military colors have always been an inspiration for fashion brands. Nike is no exception, with the American sportswear giant looking to use the famous Olive Green color on their Air Max 97.
This silhouette, which is now a quarter-century old, is solely a lifestyle model for Nike. Deviating from its original intention of being a running sneaker. However, this has allowed Nike to be much more flexible with the materials as it’s intended for informal wear. For this model, Nike has included a grainy olive leather to mix alongside the synthetic upper. All these details sit on top of a white midsole with orange air units. A jet-black rubber outsole finishes the look at the bottom. The pair is then completed with orange Swoosh embroidery and characteristic 3M finishes throughout.
