The Nike Air Woven made a memorable splash in 2009 with a couple of new colorways just in time for summer, but ever since those two pairs quickly sold out, the only weaves we’ve seen have been on hybrid models and in the Nike Flyknit history lesson. Now nearly three years later we’re seeing the first of six new editions hit retailers, this black and white edition by far the most subued of the 2012 UEFA Cup Pack. They’re also the most timely thanks to this colorway that’s crushing early ’12, along with the caramel color that we’ve seen quite a bit lately denoting casual luxury. But instead of the sockliner, that familiar brown pops up on the outsole of this March 31st release, an interesting twist to finish off an otherwise entirely orthodox approach to this most unorthodox of Nike Sportswear lifestyle designs. Check out this SOPH. exclusive colorway in greater detail after the jump and let us know if they’re worth the inevitable premium of importing this Japan-only drop.
