Nike Drops the Air Max 97 in ‘Summit White’


Nike kit out the Air Max 97 in a clean ‘Summit White’ colourway for summer 2017.

Arriving in a tonal White colourway complemented by off white laces and air bubble, a synthetic snakeskin texture finishes off the iconic shoe beautifully. This white snakeskin pack – nicknamed ‘Summer Scales’ by Nike – comes complete with Air Max 90 and Air Max 95 models made up in the material.


The late 1990s runner became an instant classic with it’s reflective lines, full-length visible air unit and futuristic design inspired by Japan’s bullet trains. Designer Christian Tresser’s eye-catching-yet-understated work continues to turn heads to this day, and the model has become an integral piece of footwear for various fashion & music subcultures along the way.

Look out for more colourways of the Air Max 97 arriving in the coming months, as the shoe’s 20th anniversary year draws to a close. An awaited ‘Triple Black’ edition is due out this November.

The Nike Air Max 97 in Summit White is out Thursday, June 29th at 08:00 BST priced at £140. Pick up the shoe on release day from
