Nike Air Classic BW – White – Gold Gradient
Of the entire Nike Air Max running legacy, the Air Max 95 is easily the design most strongly associated with the use of gradients. But here’s proof that Nike Sportswear can just as easily fade colors into one another on a different silhouette, this time on the classic Air Max IV. Better known these days as the Nike Air Classic BW, this new edition strays from the classic ‘Persian Violet’ colorblocking template to employ an all-white leather base. This choice seems genius paired with golden accents, including a novel approach to the Big Window’s frame that moves from white to gold across a silvery midpoint. Click on through so you can see how this pristine BW looks from a variety of angles and grab yours from an NSW retailer like JD Sports.
Take the gold off of these and replace it with blue, black or red, and replace the leather toebox with mesh and you've got a decent shoe. As it is, it looks cheap as shit, especially the bit on the midsole that looks like it's been coloured in with one of those metallic gold pens...
No disrespect to anybody but JD Sports can keep those on their side of the pond. This is almost like the Footlocker all white leather Air Max 90 that they release every year. Guidos are going to love this look.
