Hybrids and reconstructions are part and parcel of Nike’s approach in paying homage to the past while keeping things fresh.
The latest combination which debuted earlier this year is the Air VaporMax 97, which as the name suggests combines the upper of an Air Max 97 with the sole unit of an Air VaporMax.
The upcoming colourway of the VaporMax 97 pays tribute to the Air Max 97’s OG release of the “Silver Bullet”, inspired by the bullet trains of Japan.
Similar to the original, the upcoming pair blends leather and mesh in silver and white, along with its contrasting red mini Swoosh.
The pair will be available on March 30 from Nike.com at 9am for S$299/RM849.
