Editor’s Notes: Following leaked product images of the Nintendo 64-inspired Nike Air Max 97, Nike has officially announced a September 25 release date for the sneaker in the US. Nike calls the sneaker “atmosphere grey” on its site, as there is no official Nintendo co-branding anywhere on the shoe. The colors and tongue tag detailing are an unofficial nod to the Japanese gaming titan and a much-loved machine that was launched in 1996.
