From the original Air Max line, Nike created one specific running model with the maximum impact cushioning, and this was called the Nike Air Max 97. The brutal, repetitive, downward force of sport can wreak havoc on the body and on performance. Max Air cushioning is specifically engineered to handle these impacts and provide protection.
The Nike Air Max 97 is smooth and well-cushioned and it features synthetic leather with mesh upper. Its integrated lacing system with 360-degree reflectivity functions for nighttime visibility. The midsole composed of Polyurethane material with a heel lateral crash pad. Designed for runners in need of maximum cushioning and stability, the Air Max 97 has an anatomically full-length dual-pressure Max Air unit and BRS1000 regrind carbon rubber for eco-friendly traction and durability.
For years of existence, the Air Max 97 has proven to be one of the most comfortable running shoes. With the lively color combination that the shoe renders, another point was recognized to be one of its facets. The parallel wave design along the upper becomes patented with the Swoosh situated at the middle of the side panel. Inside liner offers soft ambience for the foot and its special lacing system was designed for rough and hyperactive moves.
The gripping sole provides ultimate traction control. This will allow a runner to stay foot even on elevated and uneven surface. For further branding, the Swoosh appears on the tongue and on the outer sole.
