First look at Nike’s Gold Medal Air Max 97 sneakers
Nike's latest Olympics-inspired design is guaranteed to have you feeling victorious as soon as you slip them on.
Having recently dropped an entire Air Max 97 pack inspired by the colours of the Olympic Rings, Nike is now taking things one step further. The brand has just unveiled a new style for the silhouette, this time decked out in gold to celebrate the winners of the mega sporting event.
Release date: Sometime in 2020
Where to buy: Nike
Aptly titled "Gold Medal", the sneakers arrive dripping head-to-toe in metallic gold. The upper is constructed of mesh and leather, while reflective accents appear throughout the style.
The golden theme continues onto a glittery midsole and deep golden outsole, while golden laces complement the bold design. A black sock liner and red "air max" text on the heel tab meanwhile provide the only deviation from the colourway.
No release information has been revealed at this stage, though it's likely that the pair will drop closer to July when the Games begin in Tokyo. When they do arrive, they should appear first on the Nike site.
In other news from the Swoosh, an entire Valentine's Day pack will also soon be available to shop. The line includes themed pairs of Air Force 1s, Air Max 98s, Blazer Lows and Nike Zoom 2Ks and will begin to drop from 8 February on the Nike site.
