Release Details: The Nike Air Max BW ‘Los Angeles’
Release: 16 September 2021

Los Angeles is preparing to welcome its very own Nike Air Max BW, the colourful creation full of callouts to the City of Angels. Part of a wider ‘City Pack’ that references multiple metropolises – including ‘Rotterdam’ – this LA edition starts with a strong black and white base before adding orange and purple colour pops. 

Joining celebrations for the Air Max BW’s 30th birthday, this release rocks ‘1991’ and ‘2021’ on its lace dubraes to pay homage to the significant sneaker anniversary. Other neat features of this Air Max BW include the graffiti-style ‘LA’ logo on the tongue of the left shoe, and ‘LOS ANGELES’ emblazoned across the heels of each shoe.

While the BW has actually featured quite prominently in Nike’s Air Max lineage in the decades following its 1991 debut, it took a bit of a breather after the 2015 retro cycle. Thankfully, these 30th birthday celebrations have heralded a strong return for the Big Window, with a steady stream of colourways landing so far in 2021.

Pairs of the Nike Air Max BW ‘Los Angeles’ are expected to hit Nike and selected Swoosh stockists on September 16.
