As we get better views of the upcoming Nike Air Force 180, we can see that Nike did its best to compromise the loss of the strap and pump by implementing some snazzy colorways and even some Glow In The Dark treatment seen on the Wolf Grey pair we showed you not long ago. Truth of the matter is that while we would’ve loved the OG stature of the Air Force 180 High, the Pump would be wildly impractical, so let’s enjoy the final product for what it is – a classic Nike Basketball model that reprises its role in a more convenient fashion. We’ve got another look at the Photo Blue colorway that we first caught a look at on Monday, so take a gander and cop this size 9 sample now from skit_japan on eBay.

Abt no real sneaker head would cop these stfu... U old fools annoy the hell outta me always complaining abt how things weren't like that back in the day u must realise u sound like ur grandad tellin stories wen he was a kid movE with the times these are dope.if u want the pump go on eBay and buy a pair that will fall apart
No real sneaker head gonna cop without tha pump..specially of The color way is like this. What a shame and a waste.thanks Nike for ruining another classic..
Not cost effective? For a billion dollar company? They can't add a plastic bladder to a ankle and tongue with a release valve? I am sure 90% of the people who want these would pay $350 retail just to have the real thing or close to it (in new cheaper retro form) and Nike loves profit. The PUMP WAS THIS SHOE. I hope Steelo is right because that would be a great idea but chances are its blocked due to to a patent infringement.
I agree a full run of 180's in different cw's with the pump system may not be very cost effective, but the key to my statement was QS (quick strike, limited quantities). If they can do a limited run of McFly's, they can do limited run of the David Robinson cw with the pump system. Who knows I could be totally wrong and you absolutely correct, but it would not surprise me if they did.
