Nike has a nice back-catalog of USA themed sneakers. The kicks usually appear around the US independence day, international sports competition moments and noteworthy anniversaries.
However, Nike will very soon release this USA themed edition of the Air Max 97 without a cultural call to action. The sneaker is mostly set in two tones of blue (game royal and midnight navy) over its layers of leather and mesh. University red adds a sharp contrast to the upper with a single wavy line, Swoosh, tongue detailing and heel detailing and sole elements. Completing the USA palette, white is used on the midsole.
Its not just the colors that make the design, a USA flag inspired star pattern is placed is placed a portion of the sneaker’s upper.
The sneaker is expected to drop on the 18th of April.
