Editor’s Notes: Following “Metallic Dark Sea,” and “Metallic Gold” iterations, the hybrid Air VaporMax 97 is back in an OG-inspired colorway, inspired from the Air Max 95 “Grape,” and it’s right on time for summer.

Flaunting a color scheme of white, aqua, varsity purple, and metallic silver, the sneaker’s overall aesthetic is defined by the upper of the iconic Air Max 97, and infused with the new VaporMax tooling.
