Before Nike switched to 100% post-consumer cardboard for their boxes back in 1995, the Swoosh’s signature packaging was an orange-lidded, grey-based box. That pop-top design had diagonal stripes on the grey part until ’93, a look that was referenced by the ‘Vintage Box’ Trainer 1 drop two summers ago. And while their large sections of white aren’t an exact replica of the old boxes’ colorblocking, this new Nike Air Classic BW does indeed resonate with that classic Beaverton vibe thanks to a white/grey/black base accented by bright orange hits on the places you might refer to as the ‘Persian Violet’ sections. US-based BW fans will no doubt be familiar with the Big Window‘s tendency to release as a Euro exclusive, so check out some new images after the jump and grab a pair from Nike Sportswear retailers including the UK’s End.
