Editor’s Notes: After both the “Black” and “Menta” Nike Air Max 97s were unveiled at the OFF-WHITE Spring/Summer 2019 show in Paris in June, OFF-WHITE and Nike have officially confirmed both colorways were released on October 18.
The Menta version was listed on European Nike SNEAKRS accounts, and available through raffles at various OFF-WHITE Flagships worldwide The black one was available only through the U.S. Nike page, effectively making it a US-exclusive.
Previously, we were given our best look yet at both versions by way of leaked product shots, all of which you can check out above. OFF-WHITE’s official Instagram announcement is below, as well as Instagram posts from the flagship stores that have announced raffles already (with more to come soon).
As with most of the 2018 OFF-WHITE x Nike releases, the Air Max 97 pack comes in two contrasting colorways to complement the original “The Ten” releases of 2017.
OFF-WHITE’s main announcement didn’t give an exact release date, instead pointing sneakerheads toward individual OFF-WHITE flagship store accounts for further details.
As always, stay tuned for more information as we get it.
