Nike Air Max 97 Shoes


The Nike Air Max has a long list of hits, including the Nike Air Max 97. The sneaker was designed by Christian Tresser. The look of the shoe, with the wave that flows from front to back along its sides, is a big part of its aesthetic appeal. For decades now, the Nike Max 97 has maintained its position as one of Nike’s most popular silhouettes.

THE DESIGN

Tresser was moved by the speed and aerodynamics of Japanese bullet trains. The streamlined look he was seeking matched up perfectly with the Air Max 97, which was designed as a running shoe. They were made with the latest and greatest technology when they were released in 1997. Today, they are much more of a casual sneaker. One of the most popular Air Max 97 colorways is the Silver Bullet. The silver, from top to bottom, is a legend in sneaker culture. The All Gold and Platinum White Air Max 97 colorways are also very popular. The Nike Air Max 97 has a look that never seems to go out of style and the technology used to make them allows them to still be a comfortable shoe to wear today.

SHOE PALACE & THE AIR MAX 97

The Air Max 97 was released not too long after Shoe Palace first opened its doors. The Nike Air Max 97 has been a mainstay at Shoe Palace for decades now. To this day, you can find a large assortment of Air Max 1997 styles that you will not be able to find any place else.

LEGACY

The Nike Air Max 1 debuted in 1987. It was inspired by the open architecture of Paris’s Centre Pompidou. Legendary Nike designer, Tinker Hatfield, cut a small window into the Nike Air Max’s midsole. This allowed for Nike Air to be visible for the very first time. The innovation of the Nike Air Max model would continue with the Nike Air Max 90 in 1990. The Infrared colorway of the 1990 is still a bright spot in Nike’s legendary archive. The Nike Air Max 95 is another memorable and still resonating piece of the Air Max legacy. Other standout shoes include the Air Max 270, Air VaporMax and the Air Max 97. Air Max has become more than just a shoe, it has become a worldwide style icon.

CELEBRATION

Nike celebrates its legacy yearly with Air Max Day. Nike’s first Air Max day was in 2014. Nike has been a cornerstone of Shoe Palace locations and shoepalace.com for decades now. The Nike Air Max is easily one of the most important shoes ever created and one of Nike’s greatest creations.
