[UPDATE: March 6, 2018 1 p.m. EST] Beauty images of the silhouette courtesy of Concepts have been added to the gallery. Read the original story below.

Brand: Nike

Model: Air VaporMax 97

Key Features: Featuring the same bullet train-inspired upper shape that the Air Max 97 so iconic, the upper is paired with Nike’s complex Air VaporMax sole unit. The result is an all-new hybrid that celebrates the best of both worlds. The sneaker is done up in a black, silver, and neon green colorway.

Release Date: March 9

Price: $190 USD // €225 EUR

Buy: Nike & select retailers TBA

Editor’s Notes: Judging by the considerable success of Nike’s Air VaporMax Plus, the brand’s next hybrid should be just as popular thanks to its blend of past and present style cues. OG fans will appreciate the old-school “Japan” colorway, while newer heads will certainly be pleased to see another combo-sneaker utilizing Nike’s revolutionary Air VaporMax sole unit.
