NIKE AIR MAX 97 “GOLD MEDAL” CT4556-700
As the Nike Air Max 95 inches closer to its 30th anniversary, Christian Tresser’s design continues to experiment with materials, color-blocking and themes.
For its latest ensemble, the anatomy-informed silhouette seemingly took a trip to Bullworth Academy as it’s outfitted in the typical colors of a prep school student: muted grey and navy is accompanied by more eye-catching, but still understated hits of green, yellow and red. Iconic Air Max branding on the top of the tongue is replaced with a school crest-like figure, which also lands on the sock-liners. Suede and other classy materials take over the upper, while foam and visible Air make up the midsole. Underfoot, the Air Max 95 “Prep School” keeps things simple and heritage-driven as a pitch-dark arrangement covers the waffle-patterned tread.
