Nike has been celebrating 20 years since the nike Air Max 97’s original release all year — but the real bangers are coming for the fall.
Designer Christian Tresser, the same gentleman that designed the Air Zoom Spiridon, was inspired by the industrial lines of his favorite mountain bike while creating the Air Max 97.
“Mountain bike components and mountain bikes at the time had metal on metal finishes like aluminum and polished titanium,” Tresser said in a statement.

The Air Max 97 is celebrated for introducing full-length visible Air cushioning. Now, two OG builds are returning, including premium renditions, as well as the new Nike Air Max 97 metallic gold.
The Nike Air max 97 Ultra has undergone a weight savings by way of a single layer upper and (hopefully) become more comfortable with new Air-Sole PSI levels.

“The innovation in the Air Max 97 Ultra comes from the point of view of refined comfort,” said Dylan Raasch, Nike Senior Sportswear Design Director, in a statement. “We updated the airbag, which is tuned softer, and the foam around it is streamlined to be closer to the ground. The lining is totally seamless with a single shell for the upper construction. The Air Max 97 Ultra retains the spirit of the OG through details you can really feel.”
Here’s the Nike Air Max 97 release guide for the fall, so far.
