In a nod to the OG colourway of the Air Max 97, Nike has just unveiled a brand-new colourway titled the “Purple Bullet” that offers up a refreshed take on the classic. If you’re serious about the Swoosh and sneakers then you’ll already be aware of the legendary status held by the OG “Silver Bullet”, so if you missed out on your chance to cop those a few years back this new offering is the perfect alternative!
The beauty of this colour scheme is simply how versatile it is when it comes to pairing it with an outfit. If you’re looking for a sportswear-inspired classic that will propel your rotation to new heights then look no further.
The uppers are crafted from a range of different fabrics including leather, synthetics and athletic mesh. Glimmering silver is the primary colour used here, with hits of purple injecting a new element of life into the sneakers. Nike’s signature Swoosh logo appears in miniature form on the lateral and medial sides and again at the tongue, while the heel tab instead opts for range-specific Air Max branding.
Hits of black and a futuristic lacing-system (inspired by a Japanese bullet train) complete the look. Underfoot, the AM97 offers up a full-length visible Nike Air Max unit to provide unparalleled comfort and support. As everyday beaters the Air Max 97 seldom disappoints, so if you’re yet to own a pair the Purple Bullet is the perfect chance to check them out.
The Nike Air Max 97 “Purple Bullet” is yet to receive an official release date from Nike, so make sure to keep it locked in right here at The Sole Supplier for all the latest news and updates you need in order to get your hands on this pair.
