The Most Iconic Trainer

Posted on March 01 2019

Nike's Air Max 97' took to the sneaker world over 20 years ago. With a design focusing around the speed and blur of high speed level bullets, the Air Max 97' is one of the most iconic trainers in the sneaker universe.

Nike designer, Christian Tresser designed the iconic sneaker to feature Nike's Air Sole Units. These units consist of "pressurized air inside a tough yet flexible bag [which] provides more flexibility and spring without compromising structure" (Nike). However, you can thank these Air Sole Units for keeping these sneaks lightweight yet snug on your feet.

The Nike Air Max 97' is bound to continue it's success in the sneaker realm as this retro design continues to be an influence in the sneaker evolution. Starting with the "Silver Bullet", which held a bright red Nike logo and a reflective upper has now evolved into multiple colour ways, collaborations, design changes and new collections incorporating the design into the Air Max 98'.
