Originally released 25 years ago, the Air Max BW
(or 'Big Window') first dropped in a neck breaking combo of Black/White/Violet. Dubbed by Nike as ‘Persian Violet’, the colourway has remained a firm favourite with sneakerheads ever since, and has been seen on a range of other Nike silhouettes.
Featuring an extended air bubble in the sole unit, perforated heel counter and distinct Air Max branding, the BW is a slimline runner that’s instantly distinguishable from the rest of the Air Max family. For this drop, fans of the original may notice some changes to the design, including an upgraded leather upper and premium suede finish around the collar and tongue.
One of the most iconic colourways in the Nike archive, the Persian Violet accents on the Nike swoosh, nylon mesh tongue, lining and collar are what makes these sneaks really pop. Cop a pair quick, because these are bound to sell fast.
The Nike Air Max BW Persian Violet is available from Air Max Day 2016
