The iconic Nike Air Max Classic BW OG “Persian Violet” colorway is set to make another return early March 2016.
The Air Max Classic BW — envisioned by Tinker Hatfield and originally released in 1991 — utilized the same Nike Air-Sole unit as the Air Max 90 but enlarged its window, and thus became colloquially known as “Big Window.” The name may not be particularly inventive, but the silhouette’s enduring swagger is undeniable.
Cloaked in black with hits of Persian violet, the Air Max Classic BW was new jack swing materialized. In the States, it became a staple of distance runners and, moreover, a favored accessory of the era’s R&B stars — as countless album covers attest. The shoe had a similar impact on street-style in Europe, where it was swiftly integrated into the hip-hop and rave scenes on both the continent and in the UK.
