Take a Look at the New Nike Air VaporMax 97 “Silver Bullet”
In anticipation for Air Max Day
Nike continues its march towards this year’s Air Max Day with this hybridized version of its popular colorway “Silver Bullet” Air Max 97. The silhouette basically fuses the Air Max 97 and VaporMax models into one, with the upper sporting the original color scheme of metallic silver with hints of varsity red and white throughout the leather upper. Finally, a clear VaporMax sole completes the style altogether.
This Silver Bullet Air VaporMax marks an important time in Nike sneaker history, as one of its most iconic designs meets its most revolutionary Air unit sole.The VaporMax sole mold is composed of over 39,000 components, making it more complicated than a high-powered car engine. It took approximately fifteen tries to get the shoe perfect, since the material is fused directly to the Air bag according to an article by Highsnobiety.
Look for the Nike Air VaporMax 97 Silver Bullet at select Nike stores and online sometime this March for $190 and be sure to take a look at some of the pictures of the model below.
