Back Soon: Nike Air Max 97 OG ‘Metallic Gold’

If you didn’t catch it last time, this week is your chance. The Nike Air Max 97 OG ‘Metallic Gold’ is about to return online @JD.

Guaranteed to be a sell-out, the OG silhouette is re-emerging from the archives; staying true to its original design first created over 30 years ago.

First launching in the ‘90s dressed in the iconic ‘Silver Bullet’ colourway, the Air Max 97 has since become a major icon. Designed by legendary Christian Tresser, its futuristic look took inspiration from water dropping into a pond, which explains why the wavy overlays extend out to the full-length Air unit – the first of its kind.

In contrast to the statement 3M reflective detailing, the hidden lacing system is low key – easy to overlook but a massive part of the silhouettes DNA.

Switching up the traditional silver colourway for a luxurious metallic gold, this iconic silhouette guarantees to turn heads in a completely new way. Combining waves of golden leather and 3M, the metallic gold OG is a cult icon, often considered collectable because it flies out as soon as it drops.

Finished up with a traffic red ‘mini Swoosh’ embroidered to the sidewalls and OG branding throughout, this vintage classic is a must-cop; defining late ‘90s style with a futuristic edge.
