1997 proved to be a breakthrough year for Nike’s revolutionary Air Max line of running shoes. 10 years in the making, Nike’s Air Max 97 was the first Air Max model to include full length Visible Air cushioning. A step forward for the Air Max line, the midsole boasted monumental comfort.
Today, the Air Max 97 has advanced even further with the release of the Air Max 97 Hyperfuse. The shoe blends the popular classic model with Hyperfuse technology, an innovative upper consisting of an almost seamlessly fused mesh upper that is lightweight and breathable.
