Air Max 97 Shanghai Kaleidoscope
Cash Ru takes inspiration from the scenery of the Chinese city of Shanghai. He translates it to the legendary Air Max 97 and creates a literal work of art. The different layers of the upper represent the clouds and their constant formation. The red swoosh makes a nice, contrasting impression and the loops on the heel and tongue add to the sneaker's panache.

About Nike Air Max
In1987, the first sneaker with Air Sole air capsule technology was created, and Tinker Hatfield's Nike Air Max 1 kicked off a never-ending period of sneaker mania. The popularity of this really comfortable shoe made Nike introduce one Nike Air model after another, and at least a hundred different forms of this silhouette were created, such as the Nike Air Max 90, Vapormax, 98 or Triax.
About the brand
The Nike brand was founded in 1964 as Blue Ribbon Sports by University of Oregon coach Bill Bowerman and his student Phil Knight. They opened their first store in 1966 and interestingly enough, before they started making their own shoes, they were the exclusive importer of Onitsuka Tiger shoes, today's Asics.
Nike is often associated with the innovative use of new technologies (Air, Zoom, React...), and above all with timeless and stylish products. This is not the only reason why Nike is the world's largest manufacturer and seller of sneakers on the global market. Among their most popular products are the Air Force 1 and the Dunk, of which we have a lot of them on our e-shop. It's not only on these models that countless collaborations have been created that have absolutely dominated the streetwear world. As the most famous we can mention the Nike Dunk model. Released in 1985, the Dunk is still a legend of the city streets after 30 years and in its rich history, it has managed to win the hearts of members of many cultures, be it skateboarding, basketball, BMX and many others. Available in high, low or mid, there is a version to suit everyone. There are hundreds of colorways, from the original collage pack containing colorways like Michigan, UNLV, and Villanova, to the influx of new colors and variations in recent years. And if you're craving something really special, we've got some of the most famous collaborations for you, like the deconstructed visual collaborations with Off White and its founder, streetwear legend Virgil Abloh, or with arguably the most popular rapper of our time, Travis Scott and his label Cactus Jack.
