The new Air Max 97 is reflective, retro and futuristic – find out when and where you can shop the statement style.

Looking for a new statement kick? Nike has just unveiled the latest update of the iconic Air Max 97 silhouette, and it belongs in your sneaker rotation immediately. Not only does it look super futuristic, but it's also reflective and we love the unique design.

What is it: Nike Air Max 97 in Black/Reflective Silver/White

Release date: As of 30 October, it's available in the US. It shouldn't take too long to reach the Australian site so keep your eyes peeled.

Price: Approximately $240

Where to shop: Nike. We're hoping the style will reach stockists like JD Sports and Platypus Shoes, but nothing is confirmed as of yet.

Why are we so obsessed with this style? The shoe features 3M reflective silver stripes throughout the body. They're in the shape of a ripple-like wave, following the 97's silhouette and it looks really cool in dark lighting. The colourway is a white-to-black fade, with the transition even reflecting in the sole unit – the white midsole contrasts to the black Air Max unit.

We love the blocked-out sections, like the black tongue and laces and the bold white Swoosh, all sitting against the faded colourway. The "Just Do It" slogan on the heel tab adds a cool touch. What we're trying to say is... this pair of kicks is a must-have.
