This offering of the Nike Air Max 97 Black Reflective features an all-Black upper constructed in a mix of mesh with leather overlays. Swoosh branding on the profiles and tongue and “air max” text on the spine deviate from their monochromatic surroundings in a shimmering metallic tone. Save, the obvious silver Swooshes, the pair does not deviate in the slightest from its overarching ominous hue. It’s differentiated by 3M reflective overlays — a standard 97 finish — though it’s taken to another level by the inclusion of reflective threadwork on the lateral Swooshes. Lastly, tread underfoot features the covert aesthetic and its visible counterpart.
