Vachetta leather has been all the rage at Nike over the past few months, putting a premium twist on everything from the Air Jordan 1 and CP3.IX to the new Swoosh Hunter and off-court EXT take on Kevin Durant’s KD 8. So, with the Air Max BW resurrection in full swing for Spring 2016, Nike is naturally bringing the construction to the old Tinker Hatfield-designed runner. Hot on the heels of a Black/Bright Crimson-Wolf Grey make-up, the latest premium BW is one of the cleanest to date and pairs a predominately tan upper with a combination of black and white accents throughout.

Fans can find the kicks now at Tokyo’s atmos while global availability is sure to follow in the coming weeks.
