Nike is literally trying to grab headlines with its latest iteration of the “Newspaper” Air Max 97 sneaker.
While not much information has been provided by the brand regarding the inspiration behind the pair, the classic running model is available right now featuring a white-based leather upper. This is contrasted by a sepia-tinted 90’s newspaper graphic running along the mudguard and on the mini Swoosh branding, which sits atop visible, full-length Max Air cushioning. Additional details include black and orange accents on the insole’s pinwheel print, the tongue, the heel tab and on the rubber outsole. Check out a detailed look at the kicks below.
Since its retail debut back in 1997, the throwback running sneakers have seen countless releases, including a wave of colorways that dropped throughout 2017 in celebration of its 20th anniversary.
