As the 2020 Summer Olympic Games rapidly approaches, Nike will soon release a new colorway of the classic Air Max 97 that may be inspired by the games' elusive gold medal.

While the official inspiration behind this pair has yet to be revealed, the official images show that the show features a tonal gold patent leather on the upper, matching gold tongue, laces, heel tab and contrasted by a black sock liner. Capping off the look is a gold Air Max-cushioned midsole and a gum outsole.

While an official release date has yet to be revealed, this "Gold" Nike Air Max 97 is expected to release on Nike.com and at select Nike retailers in the coming weeks. Check back soon for updates.
