The Nike Air Max 97 “Silver Bullet” Is Returning Again… In Ultra Form

Struck out on the Nike Air Max 97 “Silver Bullet” this year? Don’t worry, there’s gonna be another chance for you to cop them this year — sorta.

The classic colorway is making a return as the all-new Nike Air Max 97 Ultra, and there’s few notable updates.

  1. It weighs less than the original, thanks to its rebuilt upper which replaces excess materials.
  2. Original embroidered 3M tracks on the upper have been replaced with a taped look.
  3. The “Air Max” type on the heel has been changed.

Sold? Well, you’ll have to wait to until August 5 to pick a pair of these up via the SNKRS app. A global launch is set for August 17 at select retailers.
