The Nike Air Max 97 “Seoul” to Release in April
Seoul on Fire!
Toward the end of last year, Nike launched it’s “On Air” workshops across select cities around the world, tapping into the creative minds of local talent. The aim; to devise a handful of choice offerings up this year’s Air Max Day. One of the winning pairs — and touted to be the best of the bunch — is South Korean Gwang Shin’s Air Max 97 which pays tribute to the nightlife of Seoul, his nation’s capital.
Anchored in a black base, the iconic wavy upper synchs with the Taeguk symbol on Seoul’s flag, but also refers to the city’s animated nightlife, with streets packed and piled up with neon lights. While a release date is yet to be confirmed, we do know that the entire “On AIr” capsule will begin to roll out this April — but it is expected that there will be an early release on or around Air Max Day this March.
UPDATE: According to @py_rates, the “Neon Seoul” Air Max 97 is set to release on April 13th for $200 USD.
