Nike’s Air VaporMax 97 “Metallic Gold” was a hit when it released earlier this year and just in time for summer, we’ve been graced with a similar version that fittingly takes on a paler, yet still metallic golden hue.
Dubbed “Blur,” the light gold color sweeps over the textile upper, which boasts those signature Air Max 97 waves throughout. Tonal laces and stitching complement the look, with a black sockliner and heel tab bringing an element of contrast to the overall glam sneaker. Unlike it’s predecessors, this time the mini Swoosh detailing on the tongue and lateral side appear in a “Vintage Coral” shade rather than red and the shoe has reflective elements that will ensure you stand out in the dark. The entire unit rests upon that trademark crystal-clear Air Vapormax midsole, which provides additional comfort and a lightweight feel.
As an added bonus, “Blur” is a women’s only exclusive – you can shop it at Nike.com and select Swoosh accounts worldwide for $190 USD from June 21. For a more colorful rendition, check out Nike’s Air VaporMax 97 “Varsity Purple.”
