The streamlined upper, the characteristic lacing and the discreet swoosh - shortly before the millennium, Nike presented the Air Max 97. Inspired by the Japanese high-speed train Shinkansen, the Air Max 97 embossed the youth of all of us and lighted up our eyes.
Though it feels as it were only yesterday, when our Mischa delivered newspapers in his very first Air Max 97 - and this year the runner celebrates its 20th birthday! The legendary sneaker still features the 3m layered upper, full-length air unit and the little swoosh.
Undefeated will also be helping with the celebration of the Air Max 97. UNDEFEATED and Nike are teaming up for a great collaboration. They created a mainly black colorway of the iconic Air Max with a green and red side panel. Those two shades pays tribute the sneakers connection to Italy. The side panel features a series of »UNDEFEATED« branding in white text.
