Editor’s Notes: Nike’s latest Air Max 97 takes inspiration from an unlikely source: the cardboard packaging used to ship sneakers around the world.

The upper’s hues are an obvious nod to cardboard boxes while the insole and heel pull tabs feature details that further underline the theme.

While a lot of thought has certainly gone into the upper, the highlight has to be the Swoosh shipping label printed on the sole of the shoe and visible through the icy blue transparent outsole.

Check out the sneaker above and look for the Nike Air Max 97 “Unboxed” to drop tomorrow, January 18.
