Most of the shoe’s uppers are dominated by sleek black hi-tech materials. Complemented by lightly padded collars, the shoe’s upper quarters are built with breathable mesh, alongside tonal leather strips and rope laces. A bright orange Swoosh patch is woven at the top of the tongue, matching the same tone as a thin strip found above the shoe’s purple suede mudguards. A red embroidered Swoosh at the midsection, black speckled midsole and crimson-tinted full-length Air sole unit round off the details of the sneakers.
The Air Max 97 “Concord” is currently available on Nike’s website for $170 USD.
