When the Air Max BW was originally released in 1991, the shoe quickly became one of the hottest and most desirable kicks on the market. It established its place as a staple for distance runners and, moreover, a favored accessory to the era's R&B and hip-hop stars--as proven with countless album covers. Just a mere 6 years later, the Air Max 97 dropped, with a sold so recognizable, you could spot it from a mile away. Since then, the two styles have become two of Nike's most prized and celebrated silhouettes in its longstanding history.
As first seen on a collaborative project with Skepta, the Nike Air Max 97/BW features a silhouette that fuses together both the Air Max 97 and Air Max BW designs into one. This time. Nike drops an all Black iteration, constructed with leather and mesh materials. As the mer allows breathability, the leather provides a luxurious element to the otherwise casual shoe. It is then finished off with hematite panels and a 3M reflective trim, wrapping around the mid-upper.
