NikeLab x Riccardo Tisci Drop a New Nike Air Max 97
Fresh off of a NikeLab Dunk Lux Chukka drop, Riccardo Tisci is back at it again. This time, the veteran designer offers his take on a classic silhouette, Nike Air Max 97. Similar to his prior NikeLab collabs, Tisci adorns the model with his high fashion aesthetic. The result is a streetwear focused, luxe high-top. Sticking to a minimal palette, the shoe explores proportions. Tisci’s Nike Air Max 97 features a leather upper with side stitching detail. Accentuating the design is a gold swoosh and lace tips. For the midsole, Tisci opts for a crisp white. Finishing off the sneaker, he embosses the upper heel with the now customary “Nike x RT” logo.
The NikeLab x Riccardo Tisci Nike Air Max 97 is going on a bit of an international tour. The new shoe will first release in Rome on March 17th followed by Asia on the 24th before finally making its way to Europe and the US on March 26. Retailing for $200, the model is in line to become a new classic. Are you into it?
