The Nike Air Max Zero is the latest model to get in on the Air Max 97 trend. Later this week we’ll see a number of different Air Max silhouettes don the “Silver Bullet” look featuring that Metallic Silver, but if that aesthetic isn’t for you, there are still more classic colorways to be referenced during the AM97’s 20 year anniversary. We’re speaking of the Nike Air Max 97 Metallic Gold, of course. This is the first time we’ve seen that colorway translated onto a different Air Max model, as the Nike Air Max Zero Metallic Gold features touches of red on the heel counter while gold mesh and synthetic overlays match a metallic visible air unit borrowed from the Air Max 1. The Swoosh even has hidden reflective 3M features. The Nike Air Max Zero Metallic Gold drops April 17th, for $130.
Air Max Day is EVERY day, if you’re a real Air Max nut. In April, Nike is making the OG “Silver Bullet” the color thematic of the month, and they’re making sure you won’t miss out because five different silhouettes (that we know of) are adorning that classic silver/red colorway. Alongside the Air Max 97 is the Air Max 95, Air Max Plus, Air Max Zero, and the Air Max Jewell in this classic look. Preview all of them below and look for these in select shops beginning on April 13th (some are in stores already).
As we get closer and closer to Air Max Day, there seems to be more and more options for new Air Max sneakers hitting retail. Now there’s a few more to consider, with the new set color and material possibilities for the Air Max 1, Air Max 90, and Air Max Zero that just hit NIKEiD. There’s a whole new set of colors for various sections of the upper, a speckled midsole option, and materials like leather and suede now available, and it looks like you can almost make your own pair of the OG red colorway. See examples here, and get started on your own pair by following the links for each below.
