When the "Persian" Air Classic BW made a return to retail back in 2008, many fans were left empty-handed thanks to a limited overseas-only release. Almost four years later, Nike Sportswear is treating fans of the classics to somewhat of a similar colorway.

Although they aren't exactly "Persians," this latest release of the BW is one that would fit right in with the numerous original colorways we all covet. Black mesh and nubuck build most of the upper, while Deep Royal handles the collar, liner, Swoosh and tongue. Hits of dark grey set these apart from the "Persians," taking care of the nubuck mudguard and outsole.

This latest colorway of the Air Classic BW is now available at select overseas NSW retailers.
