AIR CLASSIC BW "JD SPORTS EXCLUSIVE" BLACK/BLACK-BLUE SAPPHIRE-WHT 316703 005 MADE IN VIETNAM UK 10 US 11 EU 45 JP 29 Ultra-rare 2008 Nike Air Max/Classic BW "Blue Sapphire" a JD Exclusive, in very good vintage condition with replacement gel insoles, but no OG box. These were a JD Sports exclusive back in 2008 and makes this a UK exclusive as back then they only had stores in the UK then. One of the best newer colours for sure. Basically the Persian BW but with a black Swoosh and a blue instead of the traditional purple and you never see these anywhere these days. Uppers are a mix of durabuck, synthetic leather, mesh underlays and classic rubber Swoosh strip.
Shoes have been worn, but after a good clean look pretty fresh still, 11 years on. The Swoosh was damaged on the outside of the right shoe, see close up in pic 3. It has been super-glued back as the stitching had frayed, so should be fine to wear, but wear with caution. The lining is a bit torn up, but I stuck some suede heel pads inside to keep them intact.
Laces have been washed and insoles have been hand-scrubbed and then machine-washed. Bubbles firm, midsoles still spongy, and no separation. If you wear and faults incur, I cannot be held liable.
I wear a few 2008/9 BWs without problems, but you never know. As the cracking on the original paint job was due to compression, I expect these will likely crack again once worn a bit and as a result, cannot be held liable for damage incurred from wear. This does not affect the wearing of the shoes and with both bubbles still firm and all glue still intact, these should be wearable for many a year to come. Again, a really killer colourway and my only pair. Pics a true representation of the shoe's condition.
Remember, these are used shoes, so be sure to have a good look over all the pictures. Impossible to find nowadays and good colours of BWs always go fast, so be quick! Please ensure all offers are made using the MAKE OFFER button above. Messages asking for my best price will be ignored.
Shoes, as can be seen in the detailed pictures, are 100% authentic like all my auctions, but no original Nike box. You will always receive the shoes in the pictures unless specified otherwise. Australia is signature or tracking only. Many thanks for viewing and good luck.
