In the past month, Nike has revealed an assortment of Nike Air Max 97 colorways as the 97’s 25th anniversary celebration comes to a close. While COMME des GARÇONS HOMME PLUS remains the shoe’s sole collaborator for 2022, the sneaker has been treated to plenty of exciting looks, both new and returning. Adding to this, the Christian Tresser-designed silhouette now finds itself in a cloudy colorway.
Nike continues to make use of the Air Max 97’s layered upper as it swaps between materials and hues throughout. Starting at the mudguard, leather is presented in a crisp gray with various complementary shades above in mesh, leather and suede. Two lines located towards the laces and collar feature the sneaker’s typical reflective finish. A soft “Sail” graces the midsole with a full-length visible Air unit between it and the black rubber outsole, completing the look.
Release for this grayscale colorway of the Nike Air Max 97 is expected to take place by the end of the year via Nike and select retailers at a price of $180 USD.
