Here’s another look from Nike Sportswear that takes the iconic Nike Air Classic BW ‘Persian Violet’ colorway and adds a twist. We’ve seen its colorblocking pattern reversed and the contrast shade swapped for another; both are true here, plus the base is done in a deep Obsidian blue rather than the Persians’ black. So we get another look that’s familiar and yet totally new — kinda like the effect of a knowledgable sneakerhead double-taking when you show up in a pair of BW Gen IIs. But you can’t go wrong with the (slightly altered) original, so have a closer look and grab yours a bit earlier than the rest of NSW spots from Kicks-Crew.
Color: Obsidian/Circuit Orange-White
