In terms of colorway, the new Nike Air Max Classic BW in Birch/Birch may be subtle, and caters to a grown-up sneakerhead who is now more prone to keeping things on a more refined and restrained side, but it still hints a nostalgic desire for attention with the large visible Nike air-sole unit. The Nike Air Max Classic BW (BW meaning Big Window) is so named because it possesses one of the biggest visible air unit when it dropped in 1991, and it has become a member with staying power in the Nike family.
Even though the colorways are subtle, it is not to be mistaken with simplicity. A mix of materials provides a sophisticated depth to the sneaker-- perforated leather, mesh, polyester and some glossy maroon midsole accents (matching the Swoosh and ankle collar) makes this sneaker not just something to slip onto the feet, but also an interesting read.
In a world where tan sneakers often take the minimalist shape of plimsolls, Nike proves that when executed correctly, birch and maroon can indeed work on a silhouette that is easily and often rendered in high voltage shades. via: Crooked Tongues
