Nike - Women's Air Max 97 OG QS 'Silver Bullet' (Metallic Silver | Varsity Red)
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. Designed specifically for runners, the Air Max 97 also sported 3M stripes on the upper, helping the runner's visibility in the dark. The sleek design was inspired by Japan's famous bullet train. At first, the Air Max 97 was a bigger hit in Europe, specifically Italy (La Silver), than it was stateside, but over time it found its place as a global force to be reckoned with!
• Leather and textile upper for comfort and durability.
