March 26, 2017
Air Max Day 2017 will be a very special one indeed as a full lineup of exclusive sneakers will all drop on one afternoon. The pair that has the entire sneaker world buzzing is the RT X NikeLab Air Max 97 Mid. This model has been reconstructed into a premium lifestyle ready aesthetic. You will notice the elevated mid-level construction, and the use of leather materials and subtle hints of suede throughout.
Riccardo Tisci himself spoke with Nike News about his collaboration and this is what he had to say: “The Air Max 97 had huge influence and impact on Italian culture. The Air Max 97 is an iconic, young shoe of 90s. At the time I was involved with DJs and music, and in the clubs the people leading the big waves were wearing Air Max. That period has a lot of history. It was the first meeting of sportswear and fashion.”
RT refers to his italian roots and what the AM97 means to him during his interview. We have the official images of this prestigious sneaker right here on AmorKicks. Check them out below, and get ready for one of the biggest releases of the year.
