Christian Tesser's Air Max 97 is unquestionably one of the most iconic Nike models to ever hit the footwear industry since it was introduced in the late '90s. After the Swoosh brand reissued the AM97 OG "Silver Bullet" in 2017 to commemorate the silhouette's 20th anniversary, the pair has now made its way back to the roster, though in a new luxe makeover that'll no doubt shine the brightest light on your collection. The Nike Air Max 97 "Swarovski Polar Blue" is one of many anticipated releases from the sportswear giant this year that Air Max aficionados are looking to secure, so read on as we take a detailed look at this new iteration!
One of the major keys for a sneaker to shoot up in class is the materials it works on: reflective coating, glow-in-the-dark capabilities, corduroy textiles, these are just some of the makeups we see time and again and by nature, most sneakerheads are familiar with these approaches. But one that never fails to stagger us is full twinkling dressings of genuine Swarovski crystals as they hardly ever come by.
Flaunting the same shimmering look as the Nike Air Max 97 LX "Swarovski Silver Bullet" from almost four years ago, this variant sees a mini Swoosh midfoot in a "Polar Blue" colorway rather than the classic red. The wavy panels across the sides that draw heavy inspiration from Japanese bullet trains then brag a plethora of glistening, top-grade Swarovski crystals throughout to give this Nike running shoe a super-luxury touch. Tesser's legendary design sits atop a crisp white midsole concealing a full-length visible Air unit that continues to be loved by the masses for its all-day cushioning and comfort. The bedazzled Air Max 97 is finally rounded off with additional branding details on the tongue, insoles, and heel respectively.
The Nike Air Max 97 "Swarovski Polar Blue" is rumoured for a global release in the next coming weeks. Let us know if you'll be breaking the bank with these kicks and in related news, the DQM x Nike Air Max 90 "Bacon" from 2005 is re-releasing this week!
