The Nike Air Max 97 ‘Blue Fury Ember’ rides a wave of color on its Black leather upper . with alternating panels of Ember Glow that fade into Blue Fury. This gradation is carried onto the tongue . while a red Swoosh contrasts the black mesh side panel. Above the rubber outsole is a full-length Max Air-Unit in red . just like Christian Tresser’s original Air Max 97 design from 1997.
