When it comes to classics the Nike Air Classic BW ranks pretty high up there but one colourway certainly stands out farther than others. The “Persian Violet”.
First released back in 1991, the Air Max BW, also called the Air Max Classic, adopted the BW alias in reference to the 'Big Window' air bubble in the heel. Due to its memorable colour combinations and innovative technical design; including its unique lacing system, additional padding and the large visible Air Unit; the Air Max BW became a firm favourite amongst its Air Max counterparts due to its supreme level of comfort.
Covered in a breathable mesh and tonal suede overlays across its predominantly black upper, the defining tone is evident on the Swoosh branding, collar section, inner lining, tongue and rear portion of its rubber sole unit.
The palette is capped off with the application of white accents gracing the heel counter and flowing towards the midsole, as it’s also applied on the leather piping that covers its profile. Finished off with matching black laces and outsole – this is one release not to be missed!
The Nike Air Classic BW “Persian Violet” will drop on the 3rd of March 2016!
