Nike Sportswear’s newest material, Torch, has been applied to the new Nike Air Max BW Gen II that is scheduled to hit retailers in the upcoming months. We previewed the new Air Max BW Gen II that uses Torch a couple weeks ago and now here are some detailed images of the Black and White colorway that features the use of a pair of Nike (RED) shoelaces. Torch is a new material developed by Nike that is breathable, lightweight, moisture-managing, 3-layer textile. Additionally the BW Gen II’s upper is constructed using a sonic weld that allows for it to be completely seamless. The Nike Air Max BW Gen II will be available shortly. via: Sneaker Freaker
Mmmmmmmm,not really sure about these,I have worn airmax bw since 1992 (I must have gone through some 100 pairs through cross country walking) and to me they dont seem as strong in construction as the original bw--it also by experience depends in which country they are manufactured.
