The Air Max 97 is a shoe with bona fide legend status. More than a few long time sneaker enthusiasts have cited the 97 as their favorite model of all time.
The Air Max 97 was especially beloved in Italy, where the shoe’s sleek, modern looks, and gleaming, silver colorway won over young, fashionable tastemakers in the Italian cultural scene.
One of these fans happened to be future Givenchy creative director, and recurring Nike collaborative partner Riccardo Tisci. For Air Max Day 2017, Riccardo Tisci and NikeLab delve into the refined aesthetic of Italian design, for a special, anniversary edition of the Air Max 97.
The silhouette is extended into a fashionable mid-top, featuring tumbled leather, suede accents, embossed co-branding, and metallic gold Swooshes. Italian shoes are synonym for luxury; add the Riccardo Tisci x NikeLab Air Max 97 to the list of reasons why.
