Editor’s Notes: Nike’s hybrid superstar, the Nike Air VaporMax 97, which gives sneakerheads the best of both worlds in classic design and modern tech, has been given the metallic gold treatment alongside the Air Max Plus and Air Max 97.

All three silhouettes feature an all-gold upper with black and red detailing on top of their respective Air sole units.

The highlight of the pack is the Air VaporMax 97, although the Air Max Plus, which has also been the base model for hybrid silhouettes, definitely deserves an honorable mention.

This release follows the “Silver Bullet” Air VaporMax 97 that was hugely popular with sneakerheads worldwide.
