Every year Nike opens the vault and the classic Nike Air Max make their return. This year marks the return of the Nike Air Max BW “Persian Violet”. The “Persian Violet” motif has already been seen on the Nike Air Max 97 and the Air Tuned Max, and now it’s made its way to the Air Max 90.
As reported by HypeBeast, “this latest offering reverses the color-coordination and utilizes its titular tone to splash onto the leather side Swooshes, eye stays, Air Max lateral branding and overlays that sit at the bottom of the throat. The leather materials that form the front of the shoe and the mid-foot as well as the mesh collars contrast with white, while the suede mudguards, mesh toe boxes, forefoot eye stays and interior liners are dyed in black. Midsoles go for the yin and yang aesthetic and split between black and white paint, the latter section of which hosts a translucent Air unit.”
Nike Japan has these babies available right now for ¥13,200, which is approximately $120 USD.
