“Emerald Green” Patterns Land On This Stealthy Nike Air Max 97

Months removed from its 25th anniversary, the Nike Air Max 97 is ostensory ramping up the production cycle as it continues to emerge in brand-new styles. For its latest ensemble, Christian Tresser’s revolutionary design has indulged in a predominantly “Black” scheme complete with minimal “Emerald Green” contrast.


Akin to other stealthy arrangements that’ve appeared on the sneaker, a pitch-dark tone takes over much of the synthetic leather and mesh construction that makes up the model’s upper. Vamp overlays, however, deviate ever so slightly in a dark grey hue. Branded mid-foot panels and tongue patches introduce a greenish color into the mix, as well as an abstract pattern; under the proper light conditions, the detail boasts an iridescent finish. Underfoot, full-length Air Max units opt for an extremely dark shade of blue. Together, each component ostensibly nods to the emerald snake, as suggested by the scale-like pattern that takes over the swooshes printed on the sock-liner.
