If you've been collecting Nike Air Max shoes for a while now, we have no doubts that you're familiar with the Air Max 97 Silver Bullet. Undeniably one of the most iconic colourways to ever grace Christian Tresser's design that draws inspiration from Japanese bullet trains, the design has now returned in the form of the Nike Air Max 97Puerto Rico and we're absolutely loving it.
Paying homage to the Caribbean island and as part of the celebrations for Puerto Rican day (the second Sunday of June each year) which Nike is known for commemorating, these AM97 features Air Max branding at the heels, quarter panels, and the Puerto Rican flag land on each tongue tab for a thematic look.
Apart from the aforementioned details, the setup pretty much borrows everything from the Silver Bullet colourway with shimmering silver accents coating the wavy panels across the sides, joined with minimal his of red and navy on less significant areas. The legendary Nike trainers are rounded off with a visible full-length Air unit making it the most comfortable pair of Nike trainers in existence.
The Nike Air Max 97 SP Puerto Rico holds grail status for many avid Swoosh fans, so make sure you hit the notification bell above if you want to secure your pair and check out our Air Max 97 size guide so you know how they fit.
