NEXT STOP: LEGENDARY STATUS.
Ride in first-class comfort. The Nike Air Max 97 LX lets you push your style full speed ahead with a design inspired by Japanese bullet trains. Reimagined with a braided design on the upper, its construction feels great with or without socks. Decorative vents along the sides bring a fresh twist to the icon.
Nike Air Max Origins
Revolutionary Air technology first made its way into Nike footwear in 1978. In 1987, the Air Max 1 debuted with visible Air technology in its heel, allowing fans more than just the feel of Air cushioning—suddenly they could see it. Since then, next-generation Air Max shoes have become a hit with athletes and collectors by offering striking color combinations and reliable, lightweight cushioning.
