Nike Air Max 97 LX "Swarovski" Silver Bullet

Of all the changes the Air Max 97 has gone through in its 20th anniversary celebration year, none is more drastic than this version created in collaboration with Swarovski. A women's style, the Nike Air Max 97 pictured uses Crystal Fabric to add a brilliant layer to the original runner. To build the shoe, members of the Nike Women team traveled to Swarovski headquarters in Wattens, Austria, where they got access to the company's archive of materials. The black Swarovski Nike Air Max 97 LX released in March for $400. The other pair seen here, which mimics the original "Silver Bullet" Nike Air Max 97, will release in women’s sizing on Sept. 7th.
