If you thought that Air Maxes were only for March, then think again.
After last month’s über successful Air Max month, Nike Sportswear is back with another huge launch to make sure that everyone keeps wearing their air.
I stayed up until 3am last night, trying to scoop a pair of the Air Max 97 Silver Bullets, and wound up taking a big fat ‘L’. Much to my surprise and delight, while sitting and watching the Tinker Hatfield documentary that we posted about today, a pair arrived at my door! Nike Toronto continues to take care of the entire CGS team, and we are all extremely grateful! But enough about me, on to the shoes!
These 97’s have released a handful of times since their original launch in 1997, and each time they maintain the classic details that make them a timeless silhouette. The upper, fully draped in silver, featuring hits of blinding 3M, make these joints unmistakable.
So much can be said about how a small hit of colour can set off a shoe. The red swoosh stitched into the side of these adds just enough flavour, while keeping them low key, and wearable. There’s nothing like a sneaker that speaks for itself; they don’t need a crazy pattern or a funky colourway. The Silver Bullets will always turn heads, and remains to be a classic
Hopefully you were able to grab your pair today, and if not, good luck trying for the Gold Bullets later this month!
