The Air Max 97 has been one of the most coveted sneaker silhouettes of 2018, and after a slew of new renditions and updated colour-ways, Nike has gone for gold with a metallic iteration. Already launching a “Silver Bullet” style earlier this year, the sporting powerhouse has taken things one step further.

Coined “Metallic Gold”, the pack showcases two variations of the Air Max 97 – one sporting a “Metallic Silver/Metallic Gold-Black” style and the second being a “Vast Grey/Metallic Silver-Metallic Gold” colour-way. Like previous iterations, the new colour-way boasts a platform-like sole, housing the famous Air Max unit, with the swoosh visible on the tongue and either side of the midsole.

The Air Max 97 “Metallic Gold” pack launches online and in select stores from November 23. Mark your calendars.
