As the long-awaited U.S. release of the "Silver Bullet" Nike Air Max 97 nears, sneaker diehards and casual fans alike are scrambling to figure out how they'll be getting their pairs. That crowd will be happy to know that there's another Air Max 97 nearing in the gold pair pictured.

While info regarding this shoe's spring release has been out there for some time, this is the first time official product imagery has been available. Note that while the silhouette pictured is a grade school one, the sneaker will release in men's sizing as well.

Current sneaker release date info suggests that the gold Nike Air Max 97 will release on April 20, although that date comes from Euro shops so it's possible the U.S. release will be later.
