Nike releases a new connected collection every few months for its lineup of lifestyle silhouettes to dress in. From the fictitious Moving Co. series last fall to the forthcoming honorary Lunar New Year celebration, the Beaverton-based business is now harkening a quartet of colors for its latest “Athletic Company” collection.
This pair looks fantastic in their contrasting dismal ensemble
Having previously laid down on the Air Force 1 – albeit in a lighter scheme – a contrasting dismal ensemble is drawn upon through the pair’s dominant “Pro Green” upper, complemented in uncommon form by a thin “Sail” strip around the midfoot while also outfitting the tongue’s base and laces. Returning to the latter’s forest green shade along the adjacently positioned pull tabs and leather tongue overlay, a striking yellow tongue tab provides an emboldened upper with its namesake “Picante Red” Swooshes and vertical “air max” branding along the heel.
The Nike Air Max 97 is likewise a success, as one could assume. While it retains some of the original silhouette’s basic qualities, this revised version is far from a clone. The overall design is based on old color schemes and panels, although it has been clearly updated to modern aesthetics.
