Entry #63 - June 20, 2012 - Air Max 97 Sample

Samples are interesting to me because I like seeing ideas that were being toyed with, and design changes that were made before the shoe released. Kinda gives you tiny a glimpse into the design process.

On this pair of Air Max 97, it looks like the designers were thinking about putting the Swoosh behind the screen on the side of the shoe, rather than over it. Bottom pic shows the inside of a regular retail Air Max 97, for comparison purposes...
