Originally making an appearance in Virgil Abloh’s “The Ten” project with Nike, Off White’s take on the Nike Air Max 97 made waves after it’s initial arrival, quickly becoming one of the most sought after models in the line. The original white colorway has seen the addition of three more since with an all black colorway, a silver ‘menta’ colorway, and Serena Williams’ signature pair with pink and purple detailing.
Virgil’s collaborations with Nike continually fetch absurd resale prices in the secondary market, and his Air Max 97’s are no exception. Taking a look at the graph above, the entire lot have seen immense appreciation since their release with the ‘Menta’ being the only one of the four that you might be able to get for under a grand. However, if these prices are a bit too steep for you then you can always buy a sharpie and an all white pair to customize your own– a strategy Virgil recommends to fans of his work.
