First launching way back in 1991, the Air Max BW
was designed as part of the Nike International series, and was the next Air Max model to drop after the Air Max III (now fondly referred to as the Air Max 90).
If you’re wondering what the ‘BW’ is all about, check out the heel unit. Aiming for maximum Air, Nike lengthened the bubble, making a ‘Big Window’ to the sole. One of the design’s most defining features, the BW is an instantly recognisable silhouette that’s a firm favourite with sneakerheads.
Stripping things back, the BW Ultra applies Nike’s tried and tested tech for an even lighter Air experience. Replacing stitched leather with thermo-welded panels, the upper is thinner, lighter and even more breathable.
Dropping in a series of colourways for men and women, you can cop the Air Max BW from 08:00 GMT on the 3rd of March 2016. Check out the Footasylum Air Max collection
for the full range.
