    A throwback to the original 8-bit Nintendo Entertainment System, the Nike Air Max BW inherits the iconic colors of the video game system which brought semi-affordable gaming to the masses. The BW is marked by the familiar four-color usage of white, gray, red and black. Further tributes to the NES seen on the front bumper of the shoe with a controller pattern as well as the “Start” button below the top eyelets. Available now at select Nike accounts including Rock Paper Scissors.

    I'd love a pair of these but sadly the UK gets nothing these days [​IMG]

    Nice work, but honestly, who would want to wear these?
    If I would wear these to school I would be laughed at so hard, I would freaking flush myself through the toilet.

    Very true. Indie kids will love the shit out of these. I don't know if I love them yet. I'd wear them, though. Got a lot of Nikes already

    Looks ugly in my opinion. But collectors fans would pay for it.

    I wear this one, except mine's navy blue as main color and silver outlines:

    hmm, I don't like trainers, so yeah, not for me.

    I think someone needs to draw a venn diagram of hardcore gamers and people that do a lot of running for nike though!

    They actually look like decent shoes from a distance.

    They actually look pretty cool, IMO. They don't look extremely nerdy... in fact, I think they managed to turn nerdy into stylish.

    I wish they weren't like sports shoes though. I wish they were like Air Force Ones, these ones are ugly IMO. But I like the colours and details.

    Amen. AF1 + Nintendo = something which could be awesome. Or maybe this could've been done with Air Stabs since they wanted to do it with trainers. Ah well, it looks decent...

    Hey, maybe if I call them "Trainers" than I can get around the no runners rule...

    Naw, they look awesome to me. Still, I don't tend to go for Nike trainers, and I wouldn't shell out more than normal for a pair of shoes.
