A colorway, also known as a colourway, refers to the specific color scheme or combination of colors used on a sneaker. It is a key aspect of sneaker design and can greatly influence a sneaker's overall aesthetic and popularity. Sneaker enthusiasts often use the abbreviation "cw" when referring to a colorway. For example, a popular colorway for the Air Jordan 1 might be called "Chicago" after the team colors of the Chicago bulls, which are red and black. There are also many different colorways released for a same sneaker model, giving consumers a choice of color options.
