Editor’s Notes:Nike pays homage to the OG “Royal” Air Foamposite One with this new release of the Air Max 97. The two silhouettes share a close connection as they were both debuted in 1997.

Here, we find the Air Max 97 outfitted in black leather and mesh on the upper, in addition to featuring a Foamposite-esque blue mudguard. Carbon fiber detailing has been applied above the midsole, branded with a blacked-out Swoosh. Complementary white Swooshes then further tag the sneaker at the toe and tongue, while Air Max branding is noted on the heel pulls. Lastly, the Air Max 97 boasts a white midsole and a translucent outsole.

Nike has yet to announce a release date for the Foamposite-inspired Air Max 97, but expect the sneaker to release soon. Do you plan on copping?
