When we hear the words Nike and Persian Violet, we automatically think of that powerful Air Max BW release from years back.
More recently though Nike have dropped that imposing and impressionable colourway on models such as Presto’s and the formidable TN’s.
But what would Nike be if they didn’t capitalise on that colourway hype by putting it into their Huarache silhouette?
Nike Air Huarache Run “Persian Violet/Pure Platinum/Black/White”
Nike have produced a serious looking colourway to one of their most popular trainers and is what we love to see in the sneaker game.
When these Persian Violet’s hit our streets, they will be very welcomed by all of us.
Kicking off at the front of the sneaker, we see a textile mesh vamp set in a dominant black colour.
A Pure Platinum toe guard parts out the vamp to deliver contrasting looks before we hit the main colour option.
An initial wave of that neat Persian Violet is shown on the tongue console with a black centre strip chasing behind the black lace section.
The colour combo works well from this angle but a lace swap will be a must to many of you.
The Persian Violet continue’s all the way up to the top and even features on the logo patch background to blend into the tongue.
Set off in black again is the text section of the patch but considering the colour combo used it’s to be expected.
Pure Platinum creates the main body of the shoe, washing through the entire overlay in a very popular design.
The lining can be seen through the overlay cut outs and shows the black option yet again but is appropriate to capture the original Persian Violet design from the BW’s.
At the rear end, we get a chance to see every colour working together in each of the different layers.
Black tricks out the heel cage and strap unit in familiar fashion and to follow suit with the rest of the sneaker.
A white mid-sole adds to the sleek looking design and only fuels the excitement on copping such a pair.
Persian Violet finishes the shoe off by creating an out-sole that pops from underneath but also from a side view.
This elegant new Huarache remakes the Air Max counterpart and blends in with the current range.
Only dropping so far on Rock City Kicks you can bet your collection that we have our ear to floor to find out when these officially drop.
