This Metallic Silver with Red, White and Black accents should look awfully familiar. In 1997, it was the OG “Metallic Silver” colorway for the launch of the Air Max 97. On the bottom floor, that’s where things are looking fresh. The original full-length Air bag has been replaced with the revolutionary Air-Sole unit of the Air VaporMax. The past and present unify in the ultimate salute to big Air.
Remember the revolution. 1987 saw the birth of the Air Max lineage, showcasing visible Air for the first time. What began as an experiment in cushioning soon evolved into an icon on the track – and the streets. Over the years, it’s been re-imagined and retooled, but the heritage always remains.
