1997 marks the year when the Nike Air Max 97 saw the light of day. Designed by Christian Tresser and inspired by a rain drop in a paddle, this model became one of the more futuristic looks back in the days and keeps pushing the bar now for more than 20 years. Its industrial inspired charm, full-length air bubble and wavy lines made the shoe one of the most beloved model in Nike history, not just in Italy.
This obsidian, white and black colorway is yet another sleek version of the Nike Air Max 97. Decked out in a 3M synthetic and mesh upper, classic see-through bubble, a rubber outsole and its signature integrated lacing system making it a great fit for dry but also more wet weather conditions.
