My favorite pair of Nike shoes are the Air Max 97’s. Prices range between $150 and $200. These shoes are not meant for basketball, football, or any kind of sport, but are meant for wearing while in school or when going to an event. The shoes provide a pillow like cushion that makes you feel as if you are walking on clouds and the shoes also have a great width so there is plenty of room for your feet to breath. All logos are on the tongue and pop out to give it a true retro feel. Not sure which pair to get? There are over 20 different colorways when it comes to 97s. Some include Blue Fury, Light Blue, Metallic Gold, Concord, and the all whites. 

All 97s are extremely light which is helpful when walking for a long period of time. No one wants a blocky shoe that makes your feet feel ten times heavier. Another perc of 97s is their availability. You can find them one website’s such as, Nike, Eastbay, Finish Line, Champs sports, Goat Sneakers, and Flight Club. I recommend these to all sneaker heads who want to add to their collection. They are an automatic go to for any event and are always reliable.
