The Nike Air VaporMax 97 ‘Silver Bullet’ is the physical manifestation of ‘old meets new.’ The upper is borrowed from the iconic OG colorway of the Air Max 97, the shoe that introduced full-length visible Air to the world. The debut was accompanied by an ostentatious silver finish on the upper, reproduced here with period-correct details like the red mini-Swoosh and black nylon pull loops. The promise of full Air cushioning is achieved with the addition of Nike’s VaporMax platform underfoot.
