UNDFTD and Nike Team Up for Celebratory Air Max 97 Colorway, Release Date Announced

by Flaunt Intern

After weeks of images circulating the internet, the extremely hyped UNDFTD x Nike Air Max 97 sneaker finally has a release date. 

Offered in both black and white silhouettes and embedded with a red and green "Undefeated" stripe, this collaboration is one of the most sought after releases this year. 

The partnership between the two brands is a celebration for both an anniversary of Nike, and Undefeated. 

UNDFTD co-founder Eddie Cruz says, "Celebrating our 15th anniversary on the 20th anniversary of the Air Max 97 felt like a natural opportunity. Why not use a model that is not only respected by our organization but also spoke of the future in its time?"

Both colors of the sneaker drop exclusively at UNDFTD in Los Angeles on Sept. 16 and the black color way will see a global release on the 21st.
