After appearing in a makeup that was seemingly Nintendo 64-inspired and getting coated in newspaper print, Nike’s Air Max 97 is set to keep its recent spate of wild colorways rolling right along with a reptilian style that seemingly nods to the classic Air Force 1 “Cocoa Snake.” Offering a classic black/white color scheme, the signature detailing on these Nike shoes is provided by a grayscale snakeskin print that slithers across the mudguard and bottom overlays. The upper’s bullet-train inspired racing stripes are dressed in crisp white, while a tightly-woven black mesh base holds the look together both literally and figuratively. Down below, a white EVA foam midsole combines with a crisp grey Air Max cushioning unit, and a black outsole finalizes the stylings. Sublimely sleek but definitely deluxe, these new 97s will hit Nike.com in the coming weeks with a $160 USD price tag, so enjoy a complete gallery of official images directly below while you await their arrival.
