Nike's “Silver Bullet” Air Max 97 LX Are The Flashiest Kicks

Better than a diamond ring.

Nike's latest “Silver Bullet” release isn't a vibrator, although its sheer sparkliness is sure to make blingey girls everywhere extremely excited. To celebrate the Air Max 97 LX's 20th birthday, Nike has adorned the legendary kicks with (wait for it) over 55,000 Swarovski crystals, for a head-turning aesthetic.

Last March, we saw a black version but the new “Silver Bullet” iteration is winning in the flashy stakes – I mean, would you even argue with your BF getting down on one knee with a box of these?

“This was such an exciting project in terms of material innovation. We were looking to explore shine and durability in a new and innovative way, and we loved the juxtaposition of the Crystal Fabric’s tough sparkle to reinvent an already iconic shoe” says Nike Material Design Director Marie Crow.

The silver and black pair will be available at Nike on September 7 for $400. Check out the women's exclusive sneakers above.
