Oh man, oh man. Have you been following all the releases for the Air Max 97? If you’re a sneakers enthusiast, you were bound to find a colour combo that matches your taste, and Nike’s got even more coming our way on top of their newly released Ultra model.
Personally, the Midnight Navy colourway was the pair that I couldn’t pass up on. What was really appealing was the gold accent contrasting on the dark navy, especially in the length-wise bubble unit. And of course the golden mini-Swoosh and the 3M are just the perfect touches.
I won’t be reviewing this pair in-depth, they’re pretty much like the Silver Bullet colourway except for the fit and obviously the colours.
As usual, go TTS. The fit on these are nothing like the Silver Bullet colourway which ran unusually small.
These are an absolute “must cop” for Air Max fans. My only gripe is how the quality assurance seemed neglected – lots of people including myself found glue stains a little everywhere around the shoes. While they can easily be removed with a hot moist towel, you would expect Nike to do better. Especially at the price point of $230 CAD (approx. 183 USD).
