The iconic silhouette turns 25 years old and a sensational comeback to celebrate this milestone couldn’t be missing. Designed and engineered by Christian Tresser the Nike Air Max 97 has always been a masterpiece of aesthetics and functionality because of its shape, its design with sinuous silver lines, and the materials and colors that still make it contemporary and modern.
Many stories inspired the designer, some of them lesser known: Mike Oldfield’s Tubular Bells LP Cover and the waves formed by falling water and the imperceptible wake of the speed of Japan’s ultrafast trains were some of the concepts behind the creation of this iconic silhouette, which, thanks to its full-length Max Air cushioning, remains a futuristic design and a masterpiece of comfort and technology.
The impact of the Nike Air Max 97 in Sneaker (&) Culture was huge starting right from Italy, the early Italian early adopters helped make it an international phenomenon.
After a while, first from Italy and then the rest of the World anyone started calling it simply “La Silver.” To pay homage to this special bond, Nike brings back this timeless classic with an Italian Exclusive release on Oct.29th. in a very few selected numbers of stores.
