Nike Air Max 97 “Atlantic Blue”

Nike throw more R9 vibes around their lifestyle game as the Air Max 97 is set to be released in an "Atlantic Blue" colourway with shades of yellow from the boot worn by Ronaldo at the 1998 World Cup in France.

A visual throwback to the Brazilian striker that's transformed into modern lifestyle piece. Set to drop later this season, the Air Max 97 "Atlantic Blue" is dressed in Mercurial mood in subtle style as Nike deliberately or subconsiously introduce a colour combination on a graphic upper reminiscent of an era of greatness.


Glow game with the lights off, Nike Air Max 97 "Atlantic Blue also features an Air-infused midsole that bounces around yellow detailing and a black rubber outsole to provide the foundations to the football-inspired design. Beautifully executed in low-key style. A strong legacy of Nike Football still relevant in lifestyle environments almost 20 years on from R9's heroics. Safe.
