Tune to 97Twenty years ago, the Air Max 97 was the first Nike running shoe with full-length Max Air cushioning. In '98, Tuned Air made its debut with a signature TPU cage-like upper. It's only natural for the two icons to collide today in the Air Max 97 Plus. The smooth and sleek full length Max Air unit balances out the vertical undulating lines of the Plus. Both design and innovation in the late '90s were big, boastful and gutsy, and this shoe is a testament to how sneakers greatly drove those approaches.
HeritageRemember the revolution. 1987 saw the birth of the Air Max lineage, showcasing visible Air for the first time. What began as an experiment in cushioning soon evolved into an icon on the track – and the streets. Over the years, it’s been reimagined and retooled, but the heritage always remains.
