All good things must come to an end, and alas, it is rumored the world might come to a sudden and complete end this coming Saturday, September 23rd, when Planet X collides with earth. We are further led to believe that North Korean Leader Kim Jong Un, aka Rocket Man, is planning to obliterate Planet X with nuclear weapons, and thereby save the world. However, if none of this comes to pass, isn’t it good to know that sneakerheads are going mad for the UNDFTD x Nike Air Max 97 Black! They were launched yesterday and already they are sold out on many websites.
The AM97 has seen countless styles sell-out in 2017, but of all of them, this is expected to be the most limited and hyped. Just as you’d expect from the Los Angeles based street label, UNDFTD work their charm against this iconic 90s silhouette.
A black crafted upper features premium glossy leather against the mudguard. The black colorway extends across the mesh and nylon upper, also hitting the tongue and inner lining. It would be monochromatic safe for Gucci inspired red and green detailing. It’s made even more striking thanks to the UNDEFEATED insignia which is repeatedly stamped throughout.
The UNDFTD x Nike Air Max 97 Black is completed with a tonal colored midsole underfoot complete with a retro floor-to-heel Air Unit. They retail at $180. In the event the world doesn’t end, these watches will make an excellent complement to the new sneakers.
