Original Story (04/23/20): Undefeated and Nike will be following up their recently released Air Max 90 collab with a return to the Air Max 97. The two connected on the 97 back in 2017 to celebrate the silhouette’s 20th anniversary as well as the LA boutique’s 15th birthday. That release came in Black, White, and the more limited Militia Green.

This 2020 release seems to be a direct update to that drop as these three colorways also come in White, Black, and Militia Green. Slight variations appear in the color codes however. The accents on the White colorway come in Aero Blue and Midwest Gold instead of Gorge Green and Speed Red. The Black colorway is expected to feature a Volt stripe, while the Militia Green pair features an update on the colorway made popular by the UNDFTD Air Jordan 4.

Check out mock-ups of the upcoming UNDFTD Air Max 97s below. Expect a Holiday 2020 release. As always, stay tuned to Modern Notoriety for updates.
