This Nike Air Max 97 LX comes in a clean black and white colorway. Made in collaboration with Swarovski, they were one of the first two releases from Nike that feature the elegant crystals on a shoe. They feature a black-based upper that is heat fused with Crystal Fabric, without the use of stitching. This method provides precise pattern pieces that curve around the waves of the AM 97, and vary for each shoe size. For example, a women’s size 7 features approximately 55,690 Swarovski crystals total on the uppers with 1.71 million per square meter. As the shoe moves, the crystals refract light, providing a bright and shimmering effect.
