Nike Air VaporMax 97 "Gold"
Step out like a baller in the Nike Air VaporMax 97 Gold. Following on from those other OG revivals, Nike once again looks to the past for this all-new hybrid. The hugely popular Air Max 97 Gold looks seriously striking above a full length Vapormax midsole.
This union of old and new arrives at a time when sole-swapped sneakers are very much on-trend. The upper half of the Air Vapormax 97 Gold stays entirely true to the original. Premium leather extends across the upper with lightweight nylon that keeps the foot securely locked in place. Everything gets the midas touch from the laces to mudguard and padded tongue.
As with the classic, subtle hits of red provide a minimal contrast to the sidewall Swoosh and tongue branding. This shoe is instantly recognisable but now its even more eye-catching thanks to that Vapormax bubble. Bringing way more comfort than the conventional Air Max 97, this promises cloud-like cushioning with every stride. Who thought such an iconic shoe could feel so good?!
