Over the past few weeks, images of two unreleased Nike x UNDEFEATED Air Max 97s have surfaced on the web. Today, Nike confirms the release of both highly anticipated pairs by unveiling detailed photos of the shoes as well as the release date.

Set to release in the coming days, Nike and UNDEFEATED will launch two coveted pairs of the Air Max 97 silhouette. Dropping in a white and black version, both pairs will feature a red and green stripe going across the entire upper of the sneakers. Made up of leather and patent leather materials, both sneakers feature Max Air units on the midsole with tonal laces to match the canvas of each shoe. Decked with Nike’s signature Swoosh logo on the side panels and tongues, UNDEFEATED also includes their staple branding on the upper side panel of the white and black pair.

Nike and UNDEFEATED’s partnership goes all the way back to 2005 when both brands collaborated on the highly sought-after Air Jordan 4 Retro. Most recently, the coveted pair were resold at Stadium Goods for a whooping $21,000.

The Nike x UNDEFEATED Air Max 97 in black and white will sell exclusively at UNDFTD on Sat., Sept. 16. A global launch of the black pair is set for Thurs., Sept. 21.
