On the heels of a successful run with the Air Max 95, Nike was once again looking to evolve their Air technology into something even better. The Air Max 97 was designed by Christian Tresser and was the first Nike Air silhouette to adapt a full Air sole unit running the entire length of the sole. The Air Max 97 Ultra '17 plays off the familiarity of the original but has a lightweight construction and responsive cushioning.
- Soft textile construction with welded design inspired by the original.
- Visible Max Air unit provides premium cushioning.
- Rubber outsole enhances durability.
