Undefeated x Air 97 OG Black
The UNDFTD x Max 97 OG Black is releasing way sooner than anticipated. This collaborative release only surfaced several weeks ago yet there's already a confirmed launch day which is set for early September.
Here we take a detailed look at this style which follows in the footsteps of several impressive Air Max 97s for 2017.
Famed street label UNDFTD join to rework a classic silhouette which has enjoyed a major revival this year. Patent leather circles the shoe across the signature mudguard which not only looks good but offers that protection from the elements.
The classic wavy construct remains intact but there are some notable style cues which separate this design from the rest. Green and red stripes circle the entire shoe with ‘UNDEFEATED’ lettering which clearly stamps this as an exclusive.
Elsewhere and the look is both understated and tonal. Black is utilised for the soft nylon across the upper and a chunky, padded tongue keeps your foot locked in place. One of the best features of the Air Max 97 is the streamlined laces which are designed to look and feel great even when hidden.
