The Nike Air Max BW ‘City Pack’ Adds Lyon to the Pride
Release: TBC

The Nike Air Max BW ‘City Pack’ has added the French city of Lyon to the pride, joining recently-revealed renditions for Rotterdam and Los Angeles. This greyscale scheme boldly contrasts white, black and grey via some strong colour-blocking, with the only variation from that formula being the tri-colour branding on the insoles.

Broadcasting the fact it’s the Air Max BW’s 30th birthday this year, the ‘Lyon’ edition features complementary ‘1991’ and ‘2021’ lace dubraes, while the French city gets called out on the left tongue, and the heels of each shoe.

After featuring quite prominently in Nike’s Air Max lineage in the decades after its 1991 debut, the Air Max BW took a bit of a breather following the most recent 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.

It’s expected that pairs of the Nike Air Max BW ‘Lyon’ will hit Nike and selected Swoosh stockists very soon. We’ll let you know if an official release date is announced.
