Those in the know will be quick to notice the iconic touches across the new Nike Air Max 97 ‘Foamposite’. As the name would suggest, this latest colourway pulls inspiration from that popular high-top.
It’s completely unique which is saying something given more than 20 styles of the Air Max 97 have already released in 2019. That said, this pair might just be another must-cop addition. It’s now available early here in the UK via Footasylum!
The Nike Foamposite is a basketball shoe famed for its lightweight comfort thanks to a synthetic moulded upper. This homage isn’t entirely crafted from shiny plastic but it does feature that instantly recognisable carbon fibre material. On this pair, it takes the form of woven mesh, a theme which is mirrored across a sidewall panel.
Like many of the vibrant Foamposite colourways, this pair opts for a stark contrast of ‘game royal‘ and ‘black‘. The result is nothing short of eye-catching, finished off nicely with an icy outsole underfoot.
