The Nike Air Max 97 shook up the running world with its revolutionary Nike Air unit over the entire length of the shoe. The Nike Air Max 97 Men's Shoe updates the original with a synthetic leather, fabric and mesh construction for a lightweight feel and cleaner look.
Origins of the Air Max 97 shoe
Nike's revolutionary Air-Sole unit was incorporated into Nike shoes in 1978. In 1987, the Nike Air Max 1 first featured a visible Air bubble in the heel. Now, in addition to feeling the comfort of Air-Sole technology, everyone could also see it in action. Two years after visible forefoot air was introduced with the Nike Air Max 95, the Nike Air Max 97 arrived with the first-ever full-length unit of the shoe. With its wavy lines, the shoe naturally made waves in the world of running. And that’s still the case more than two decades later.
