The Nike Air Max BW OG Persian Violet is an absolute classic brought back to life for the first time in five years. This is one of those shoes that we can call a “cult classic.” The fanbase of this shoe is strong, but the people that dislike them may really not like them. Most everything is true to the original 1991 release, including the box and extra stuff. What the brand didn’t stay true to, though, is the comfort. We also wish there was more consistency.
