Update: Nike has just announced that the UNDFTD x Nike Air Max 97 "Black" will drop on September 16 on UNDFTD and September 21 on Nike.com
2017 is the 20th anniversary for the Nike Air Max 97 and Nike has done an amazing job this year dropping classic colorways of the AM97 and innovating a bunch of new exciting colorways. Now, Nike is teaming with UNDFTD to drop a special collaboration of the Air Max 97. This shoe features a black mesh and patent leather upper with accents of the UNDFTD's signature green and red. The red layer on the shoe has "Undefeated" branding. The shoe is finished off with black laces and red Nike "Swoosh" branding on the tongue.
"The Air Max 97 is one of those pinnacle sneakers that changed everything when it came out. Nothing had looked like it at the time; the shape, lacing system and metallic silver gave it a more premium feel people hadn't really seen before. Upon its release it stopped everything, it screamed future," says UNDFTD co-founder Eddie Cruz.
There is no word on when this shoe will be released but expect this shoe to be one of the biggest Air Max releases when it does drop.
