Not my OGs

Because I don't want to put my originals and retros through wear and tear I wanted to get these to actually wear often enough. The engineered mesh feels light, breathable, and durable. Pretty much the EM performs well as it was intended to be. The shoes are actually slightly stiff in feel, but not a new issue as previous Air Max 97s have had the similar "stiff" feel. A few issues I have with the shoe costing a 3/5 star rating. The Nike swoosh is not stitched into the shoe above the midsole , instead it's a piece of plastic that might have the potential of tearing off or just coming off from wear and tear. Another issue, the air max 97 has the staple look of 3 strips going around the shoe, sometimes reflective. But this version is missing that third strip and is replaced by extra engineered mesh. It doesn't ruin the shoe, but it takes away from the traditional 97 look. Lastly the sole material makes the shoes quite heavy. I've never seen that same material on any other 97 till these. Over all, the shoe isn't bad or horrible, slight issues regarding cosmetics, in my opinion cause for the 3/5 rating. Over all feel of the shoe isn't bad, it is still comfortable except for the stiffness. Slightly heavy in feel. Soft weight bearing makes for a comfortable walk, probably my from the newer air max bag technology. But still, I'm a big fan of the air max 97, and this color way is personally my favorite. So this isn't something I could've passed up on. Thanks for the read!

These are wider than the original 97's due to the Engineered Mesh...sides of the toe area crease easy. Super comfortable and the breathability is second to none. Not the OG version but a decent alternative...
Pros: lightweight, runs true to size, comfortable, breathable
