Brown. The colour of the mundane, utilitarian, uniform bore. A 'blend into the background' tone best reserved for school shoes and twigs. Unless it's being handled by Nike, in which case brown is somehow transformed into a very enticing prospect indeed.
Taking its cue from the gradual browning of nature, Nike Sportswear's "Escape" pack is awash with autumnal colours and oil-finished leathers.
Four models have been reworked for the pack, incorporating light bone, ale brown and bronze tones: the Air Max 1 (£96), Air Max 90 (£102), Air Max 95 (£128) and the Internationalist Mid (£90).
