‘Persian Violet’ Peeks Through the Nike Air Max 95
The Nike Air Max BW in its OG ‘Persian Violet’ colourway is due to return at some point this year, so the vibrant purple shade has inevitably jumped over to the other children in the Air Max family. Last spotted on the Air Max 90, the next model to portray the pretty purple, white and black combo is the Air Max 95.
Without that purple hit, these AM95s would be pretty conventional in that black and white leather build. Some signature gradient details remain with near charcoal grey strips, but a choice placement of ‘Persian Violet’ gives it a small yet significant pop. Elsewhere, bold black toe bumpers running up into the tongue loops break up the tonal white build that goes up all the way to the eyelet loops and laces.
The soles are also somewhat shy of colour. Foam midsoles are stark white, and they’re paired to conventional black rubber soles. At arms’ length it may not be apparent, but there is indeed a bit of purple on display – it will take a closer look though. Find ‘Persian Violet’ on the outsole rib, and slightly less inconspicuously inside the visible Air units.
Like the AM90s and Air Max BW, release details are still pending.
