Another Air Max Day release many are looking forward to is the Riccardo Tisci x Nike Air Max 97 Mid you see above. We’ve known about this shoe for a while now, but this is the first time that Nike has “officially” unveiled it.
Officially known as the NikeLab Air Max 97 x R.T., this collaboration has Nike link up with Italian fashion designer to release a very special pair of the Nike Air Max 97.Riccardo Tisci opts to convert the classic low-top Air Max 97 model into a mid-top to match the Italian couture influences and street savvyness Riccardo Tisci is used to. The shoe’s upper is inspired by the runway as it comes with a tumbled synthetic leather upper paired up with the synthetic suede underlays. Adding a unique touch to the shoe is the discreet zipper on the tongue that also makes it easier to slip on. Finally, the all-Black look is contrasted with the help of the translucent White midsole equipped with the Visible Air unit.
Look for the Riccardo Tisci x Nike Air Max 97 Mid to release on March 17th in Rome, March 24th in Asia , and March 26th (Air Max Day) in Europe and the U.S. Retail will be $200.
