Nike Air Max 97 Premium “Blue Hero” – Blue Hero/White-Black-Varsity Red ($160)
The “Blue Hero” Nike Air Max 97 is named for the Carolina-like blue hue that covers the upper and the outsole. Swapping out the Swoosh on the midftoot mudguard panel for “NIKE” branding and adding a small Swoosh to the toe, the shoe also adds a woven band of large font “AIR MAX” branding down the laces and onto the heel tab.

Nike re-releases the 1999 cult classic Air Max Deluxe with a navy upper and flashes of swirling neon. As the first Air Max to offer a seamless upper, the model adds a TPU exoskeleton on the toe and collar for stability. Sitting below is a full length Air unit similar to the one first found on the Air Max 97.
Combining elements from both the Nike Air Max 97 and Air Max BW silhouettes, Nike’s hybrid series comes dressed in a metallic silver and Persian violet color way. Black and white provide the finishing touches and a full-length Air Max sole unit completes the design.
1991 saw the release of Tinker Hatfield’s Air Max 180 with a larger Air bubble, and this “Night Ops” version blacks out the silhouette with volt hits. The upper is crafted from ripstop nylon with suede overlays and a stingray-patterned Swoosh. Subtle bursts of volt appear on the Air unit and heel logo, while a translucent outsole gives the model a clean finish.
Nike Air Max Speed Turf – White/ Black-Wolf Grey ($140)
Designed for turf training, the Nike Air Max Speed Turf takes its inspiration from the iconic chlorophyll colorway of the Air Trainer 1. Mesh and leather combine on the upper with a heel Air unit and a football logo on the tongue and green turf logo on the heel pull.
