When you talk about black patent leather on a sneaker, typically the Air Jordan XI is the first shoe that comes to mind. Nike borrows the look and places it on the classic Air Max 97 model. They feature a white leather upper with black patent swirling above the midsole. It also uses a black outsole and branding to complete the cipher. Do these two classics form like Voltron? You can pick them up at Finishline for $145 if you’re feeling them.
