Nike reportedly has plans to release several different special edition sneakers in honor of the 2020 Summer Olympic Games in Tokyo, Japan, including a regal "Gold Medal" Nike Air Max 97. 

Not unlike previous gold Air Max 97s, the kicks come wrapped in the medal-inspired hue, with the only form of contrast appearing via the white midsole and matching sock liner. What separates this "Gold Medal" colorway from other gold AM97s is the glossy sheen and reflective detailing seen throughout the smooth, leather upper. The kicks also come equipped with gold Nike swoosh lace dubraes and a gold speckled outsole beneath it all.

Release details have not yet been announced but we expect the kicks to release sometime this Summer, possibly alongside silver and bronze colorways, just before the start of the Olympic Games.
