2020 Nike Air Max 97 “Metallic Hematite” 921826-005
- Product Code: Nike Air Max 97
- Availability: In Stock
Hematite is an iron oxide mineral derived from the Greek word for blood, haima, due to the red hue found on some varietals. Spurred by the success of other metallic Air Max 97 colorways like the ‘Silver Bullet,’ the Air Max 97 ‘Metallic Hematite’ colorway features a Metallic Hematite leather base with layered Black, Anthracite, and Dark Grey tones on its nylon and leather upper. The runner also includes 3M reflective detailing on the top half of the upper, a full-length Hematite Air Max unit, and subtle red accents on the heel tab and rubber outsole.
Nike looks press forward with the Air Max 97 as new colorways of the popular running retro are already in the works for 2018. Dropping during the first week of the new year is this Air Max 97 “Metallic Hematite”, which features a dark mix of tones on the upper and a hit of red on the sole at the forefoot. Similar to the “Ninja Pack” color-scheme seen on the Air Max 90 and other re-issued models, this nighttime colorway boasts a metallic finish on the upper to differentiate from other nearly all-black colorways of the 97 that have dropped earlier this year.
