Riccardo Tisci and Nike’s past collaborations have seen revamped silhouettes of the Air Force 1 and Dunk. Now, in a surprise announcement, sneakerheads can anticipate an upcoming release from Tisci and Nike that reworks the classic Air Max 97 with a boot-like silhouette.
Similar to the pair’s past collaborations, the new Air Max design looks like it is crafted with high-quality leather and features Tisci’s signature Nike RT logo pressed into the ankle of the upper. The sneaker comes in a black colourway with gold lace tips and an embossed Swoosh.
The Nike Air Max 97 is celebrating its 20th anniversary this year, and the new release will mark the fifth collaboration to drop between Tisci and Nike. With Air Max Day approaching on March 26, we’re betting we’ll have a new sneaker to cop soon.
Check out the first image of the sneaker below.
