25 years ago, the Nike Air Max 97 made its debut. During that time, the silhouette has had some dry spells around the world, and some cities around the world have pushed for it to be as popular as it is now.

“Safari” pattern gives a sneaky look

While sneaker collectors wait for the pair designed by Christian Tresser to come back in its original colors, the Swoosh family keeps trying new things with the revolutionary Nike Air Max model. The newest style is only for kids and is mostly “Black,” with a “Safari” print taking over the mudguard for a stealthy look. Orange is used on the overlays on the vamp and the logos in the middle of the foot, among other places. Underfoot, the full-length Air Max unit is the first of its kind. It looks the same as the rest of the shoe, but its tread is black.


The “Safari” pattern looks good on this Air Max 97, which makes those who like it even more excited. The best part is that it’s a totally new take on an old classic, making it a great way to finish off an outfit and make a statement.
