Nike has adorned the Air Max 97 LX in Swarovski crystals to celebrate the silhouette’s 20th anniversary. Last March saw the black pair, with a jewel-encrusted upper we couldn’t look away from. Now, comes the ”Silver Bullet” iteration – when light hits its form, the crystals reflect off for a mesmerizing effect.
Nike Material Design Director Marie Crow shares the ideation behind the sparkly pair:
“This was such an exciting project in terms of material innovation. We were looking to explore shine and durability in a new and innovative way, and we loved the juxtaposition of the Crystal Fabric’s tough sparkle to reinvent an already iconic shoe.”
The silver and black pair will be available at Nike on September 7 for $400 USD. Peep the lovely women’s-exclusive pack above.
