Nike Air Max 97 Returns in 2022 Guess who’s back? Back again”. With the Air Max 97’s 25th anniversary coming thick and fast, Nike is pulling all the big guns out.
Over the recent weeks, leaks and rumours have been swirling around the internet. However, the sneaker community was not ready for this bombshell. It has since been confirmed that Nike will be releasing an epic line-up inclusive of the Air Max 97 “Silver Bullet” and “Royal Neon” colourways. The Christian Tresser-designed silhouette is set to have a big year, and this announcement is just the cherry on top
The Nike Air Max 97 “Silver Bullet” silhouette is arguably the most famous of its kind. This pair is undoubtedly the one that devoted fans will be craving. Previously, the Silver Bullet was dropped alongside the pair’s 20th anniversary in 2017. If you weren’t able to get your hands on them back then, now is the time to be ready to cop! Beyond doubt, this colourway has got to be one of the cleanest of all time with futuristic silver, bursts of bright red, and black accents. Resulting in a versatile shoe that will almost certainly blend in with any outfit.
Have you ever heard of the saying “two is better than one”? Well, Nike certainly thinks so. The Air Max 97 “Royal Neon”/ “Atlantic Blue”, which was coincidentally also last seen in 2017 is making a comeback. The pair will arrive in its original colour blocking with a Silver mesh base and Blue overlays accented with Yellow accents. The design is completed with a White midsole, full-length Air Max sole unit, and a Black rubber outsole. Although the latter will often cause fans to overlook this pair, it is a certain must-have for any dedicated collector.
Feeling excited after hearing this news? We certainly are! Let’s just hang in there for a little while longer and wait for its release in the coming year!
