Growing up I was never really into the Nike Air Max 97 and I think it was because so many of them are bright and flashy and I was never one to stand out like that but this is the shoe that really changed my mind. This is the 20th anniversary model and it is the Nike Air Max 97 Premium in the Rush Pink colorway. The official colorway is Particle Beige/Summit White/Rush-Pink and it is beautiful. As most of you know, the Japanese bullet train is the inspiration for this design and the upper is made of mesh and suede with 3M hits all over. The midsole is a full length air unit and the outsole is a beautiful one piece rubber in white. I started getting into the 97 before this model but the is the one that truly sealed it. Now I have a hard time not wanting to buy all of the ones I like. There are just too many shoes on the list and not enough money haha. The issue EVERY sneakerhead has ammarite?! So, anyone who follows me sees my grails list and I have typical grails but I also have personal grails and this is officially one of them. A shoe that makes me fall in love with a model deserves to make it on my list. Some men won’t wear pink. Some men only wear pink, and some men pick on other men who do wear pink. I say wear whatever the fu*k you want because man or not, this shoe will look amazing on anyone. I WILL own all my grails one day... including this beautiful work of art.
