Nike is giving their Air Max 97 a full-fledged makeover for golfers who want to tee off in classic Swoosh style. 

Dressed in the nearly 23-year-old silhouette's ultra-popular "Silver Bullet" colorway, the Nike Air Max 97 "G" is billed as a "true stitch-for-stitch reconstruction" of the runner, with an additional outsole grip for increased stability on the links.

Sneaker News notes that the original shoe's wavy upper has been untouched, but the Air unit has been thinned to accommodate extra and thicker-edged tread. 

While Nike has retooled sneakers for the green before—its Air Jordan golf cleats have seen multiple iterations, including the first-ever spikeless version that arrived last year—the Air Max 97 hasn't made the transition until now. 

Snap them up on Nike's website beginning January 16.
