Again, the name of the Nike Air Max 97 gives it away what year it was released. Yes, it was 1997, exactly ten years after the Air Max 1 was released. Expectations for Nike to release another running shoe featuring a visible air unit were set high, and Nike delivered. The Nike Air Max 97 sneakers were the first Air Max to feature a full length visible air unit. Even though the first sneaker would be named after the Japanese bullet train through the name 'Silver Bullet', the Air Max 97's designer, Christian Tesser, got his inspiration from nature. A droplet of water hitting a still pond was the idea upon which the designed based his work on. Even though the sneaker wasn't out for a full year before its successor the Nike Air Max 98 came out, it quickly manifested itself as a style icon and a must-have addition to anyones wardrobe.
