Editor’s Notes: Following last year’s “Silver Bullet” iteration, Nike adorns another heralded Air Max 97 colorway with Swarovski Crystals.

Here we find the “Metallic Gold” Air Max 97 made with Swarovski’s proprietary Crystal Fabric, which refracts light, implementing a shimmering effect whenever the sneaker moves. Aside from the crystals, the 97s boast the silhouette’s signature design details, including full-length Max Air tooling.

Nike’s “Metallic Gold” Air Max 97 Swarovski is due out December 26 for $400.
