Editor’s Notes: This Nike Air Max 97 features an all-over, vintage newspaper graphic print on its upper. Interestingly, while the graphic is made up of a collage of newspaper clippings and most of the content blends together, the graphic actually features an image of another brand’s shoes on the lateral mudguard by the toe. The brand in question is Onitsuka Tiger, for whom Nike (then known as Blue Ribbon Sports) was a distributor before launching its own in-house line of sneakers and rebranding as Nike.
