2017 marked the 20th year anniversary for the Nike Air Max 97, making it the best year for releases and retros if you were a fan. From a re-release of the Silver Bullets to the Black/Volt OGs to the end of year country camo pack it was definitely a great year.
The Nike Air Max 97 is a running shoe designed by Christian Tresser. It was inspired by Japan’s high-speed Bullet Trains and features a mix of leather, foam, and full-length visible Air. The original “Silver Bullet” colourway was released again in April 2017 and restocked multiple times throughout the year.
Several collabs from Undefeated having 3 different colourways to the upcoming Sean Wotherspoons 97/1 mash up that will release 2018’s Air Max day, this shoe has had a great year and will extend into next year.
Thanks to Nike Toronto for seeding me out a pair of Silver Bullets.
