Whoever at Nike designed this latest pair of Air Max 97s must’ve been bumping “Lemon” by N.E.R.D and Rihanna, because the colorway chosen for these is sure to leave your eyes a bit acidic.



Arriving in what the Swoosh is branding as “Bright Citron,” this tasty AM97 release is far from sour, boasting a bold yellow hue on the upper, in addition to black and red accents featured throughout on the bold tongue tab all the way to the signature bubble-adorned midsole. The rest of the shoe keeps classic specs in place, including a sturdy, rugged texture and the Air bubble units on the inner midsole that give the shoe its name. Overall, these leave us with a pleasant taste, and we’re sure you all can agree.

Expect the Nike Air Max 97 Premium “Bright Citron” to arrive at the top of next month (December 1) for $170 USD at select NSW retailers and online. Take a closer look below:
