Nike Air Max 97 ‘Slime’ oozes in ahead of Halloween

Coming in hot this October as the most-hyped sneaker of the month has to be the Nike Air Max 97 Halloween edition.

Nike Air Max 97: Spooky season is here

This reinvention of a classic is as slimy as it gets and probably only Young Thug can contest this fact (slatt!).

As reported by Sneaker Freaker, the Nike Air Max 97 is a limited edition and it is without a doubt that the sneakerheads of this world will be lined up to get their hands on this pair for resale.

With regards to its design, it retains its original look, dressed in black for the most part, and coated with a bold and chilling purple on the mudguard.

The craziest part of this design is the grey goop of slime that melts from the contours of the show and onto the iconic red Nike swoosh.

In the dark, the translucent outsole beams up into a neon green light and the rest of the shoe is darkened by the gleam of the reflective wave lines that run along the sides.
