Despite what it looks like, the Nike Air Max 97 Plus Black White isn’t the work of a talented sneaker customiser. This is an official release from Nike and the first of its kind to showcase such a unique fusion of two iconic silhouettes. Enjoy the best of the Air Max 97 and Air Max Plus in one shoe which is the ultimate 90s homage.
The upper is entirely true to the AM97 range complete with that wavy construct that’s enjoyed a major revival in 2017. The combination of leather and synthetic mesh provides optimum durability against the winter elements without sacrificing on that premium finish. This pair opts for a deep shade of black, even featuring to the laces and mini-Swoosh.
Nike takes the iconic midsole of the Air Max Plus and transplants it underfoot. This works surprisingly well and continues the tonal theme in a dark shade of black.
If you’re not convinced with this sole-swap, Nike is releasing the reversed option for those who prefer an Air Max Plus upper paired with a Air Max 97 midsole. Be sure to leave us a comment and let us know which is your favourite below.
The Nike Air Max 97 Plus Black White is scheduled to release on Saturday 14th October via the retailers listed.
