When presented in the 90s, the sneaker was way ahead of its time. Not only was the design sleek and futuristic, but the art performance was also comparable to that of sneakers today. Furthermore, the Silver Bullet was the first sneaker featuring a full-length air unit, which was a rather epoch-making moment in Nike Air technology as well as in sneaker design in general. The Silver Bullet – in its original silver colorway – defines the era of great design with a clear futuristic approach. The lines are fluid and soft and the color is clean as steel, only abrupted by a red swoosh on the side.

The sneaker is lightweight and comfortable featuring a unique Air Sole unit. The Air Sole differs from that of other sneakers in the Air Max family, since the outer layer is see through, such as the whole unit is visible, creating an un-paralleled look.

The Air Max 97 OG “Silver Bullet” is a hyped and popular sneaker all over the world and it will release in STØY in-store only!
