The 6 year old in me is already squealing at the thought of wearing a pair of crystal adorned sneakers, sigh.

Thanks to Nike I can still have a princess moment (at 30, whatever. once a diva always a diva). These Air Max 97 LX dipped in Swarovski crystals are to celebrate the silhouette’s 20th anniversary. Last March saw the black pair, with a jewel-encrusted upper. Now, comes the ”Silver Bullet” version.

Nike Material Design Director Marie Crow shares the ideation behind the sparkly pair:

 “This was such an exciting project in terms of material innovation. We were looking to explore shine and durability in a new and innovative way, and we loved the juxtaposition of the Crystal Fabric’s tough sparkle to reinvent an already iconic shoe.”

The silver and black pair will be available at Nike on September 7 for $400.
