Leading up to Air Max Day 2018 on March 26, Nike is bringing back some of its classic Air Max models to celebrate the occasion. One of the silhouettes making its return in OG form next month is the Air Max 180.
Its original "Ultramarine" colorway combines a white upper with ultramarine hits on the Swoosh, inner lining, and outsole, and solar red accents on the heel and tongue branding. The standout feature of this Bruce Kilgore and Tinker Hatfield co-designed model is its 180-degree Air bubble in heel—the first shoe to feature 180-degrees of visible Air. The tech used in this pair would lead to further upgrades on future pairs like Air Max 93's 270-degree unit and even Nike's newest lifestyle model debuting this year, the Air Max 270.
The 180 last also made a brief return back in 2013 with a handful of colorways including the original. The Air Max 180 OG "Ultramarine" will be available on Feb. 2 for $130 through Nike SNKRS and other select retailers.
