A WEEK OF AIR / AIR MAX 97 OG
Posted: Mar 22 2017
Today we highlight the "Silver Bullet" Air Max 97 OG. The running shoe that spawned a revolutionary design by Christian Tresser and represented yet another pinnacle moment in Nike's Air technology with a fully exposed Air sole unit that ran through the length of the shoe's midsole. Though it still incorporated a layer of polyurethane foam, it offered runners sport-specific crash padding to provide more durable heel-to-toe cushioning. This was the first Air Sole developed specifically for running, harkening back to Nike’s inception as a company on the frontier of high performance footwear for runners.
