The Nike Air Classic BW “Paris Saint Germain” debuted as a limited release back in June 2007 to help commemorate 15 years of the BW model that was dressed in the colors inspired by the Paris Saint Germain football club whose colors match the flag of France.
The team has been sponsored by Nike dating back to 1989, so the inspiration for this sneaker made a lot of sense for European countries, specifically France, who love the Air Classic BW silhouette that was designed by Tinker Hatfield that debuted in 1991.
Featuring a Neutral Grey base with Red, Blue and Black detailing hitting the mudguard, tongue, and liner. Since this release was limited, Nike added mesh and premium material onto the silhouette. Finishing off the look is a thick Red and Blue speckled midsole to compliment the upper and complete the entire France-vibe.
