Nike has announced that the UNDEFEATED x Nike Air Max 97 will be released at the UNDEFEATED store in Los Angeles this coming Saturday, September 16. The sneaker will drop not only in black, but also in a white colorway (see below).

A global release of the black colorway follows a week later, on September 21. Visit for more information.


The UNDEFEATED x Nike Air Max 97 in White

The UNDEFEATED x Nike Air Max 97 features an all-black construction with green and red lines that flow around the shoe.

Other details include UNDEFEATED branding on the red line, insole, and tongue pull-tab. It also comes equipped the classic full-length Max Air cushioning.

According to SneakerNews, the colored lines might serve as a reference to Italy, a country where the Air Max 97 has seen popularity in.
