Nike Basketball launched its Nike Basketball: 1992-2012 20-year retrospective with the Air Force 180 Low – a shoe made popular by Charles Barkley and his 1992 Olympic efforts. So what was the Air Force 180 Low a ‘low-top’ version of? Cue Captain Obvious: the Air Force 180 High. However, the OG High featured the Pump module on the ankle collar, something omitted for the Retro version slated to hit in late 2012/early 2013. We have a look at a very Suns-specific colorway of Black/White-Court Purple-Rave Pink that should spark the interests of Suns/Barkley/Air Force fans worldwide, so check out the images below and cop this Sample early from skit_japan on eBay.

While the upcoming retro pairs will arrive sans the classic pump mechanism, there is at least one lone wolf out there in the world of customs bent on resurrecting the Nike Air Force 180 High in true OG form. Revive already went to town on one pair, breathing some new life into them via a crafty sole swap, and he’s back again this time with a colorway tune up. The murderous moniker references this, with the Dave Robinson special getting dipped in an almost all black look. Click through with us to check out the results and let us know if you would pick up a pair like the Nike Air Force 180 High ‘Murder’ if it were to magically appear in the retro lineup.

Nike Air Force 180 High Pump – Sole Swap Customs by Revive

The ‘pressure’ is on Nike Sportswear to bring back the original pump mechanism for the Air Force 180 High, though it appears manufacturing costs combined with the fact that it’d no longer be a performance leader, will keep that true OG form at bay at least for now.  Take the call for that ‘true’ retro and invert it, and you might end up with a project like this that applies a more recent tooling kit to the bottom of a 1991 original Nike Air Force 180 High.  Revive Customs not only did good work in the assembly process, but the choice of an AF180 Mid sole from 2006 paired with this OG style proves that the latter was inspired by this red and orange-accented design.  These are right up there with the best sole swaps in terms of both integration and execution, not to mention likely being the most obscure ‘canvas’ for this kind of project we’ve seen to date; where does this pump-equipped Air Force 180 High compare to the other sole swaps we’ve showcased here on Sneaker News?

Nike Air Force 180 High – Photo Blue – Black -Wolf Grey – White

April 17th, 2012 by | 15 comments

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.

In what’s already been an action-packed day for Sneaker News, we’re bringing you another piece of exciting news – a first look at the upcoming Nike Air Force 180 High. We have you a preview of this exact colorway in the middle of March, but let’s look beyond the new colorway and onto the shoe itself; it features the high-rise ankle cut with the big FORCE label on the tongue, and below is the original Air Force 180 midsole in a black-to-white gradient with white contrast speckling at the forefoot. As previewed before, the pump module will not make a return. We’ve got another look at the Nike Air Force 180 High below so take a look and let us know what you think. Photo: kumastock

Nike Air Force 180 High – 2012 Retro

March 13th, 2012 by | 50 comments

It came as something of a surprise given all the attention lavished on Penny Hardaway retros and hybrids in recent months, but judging from the comments on our preview of Nike Sportswear’s Holiday 2012 basketball offerings, Sneaker News readers are just as excited for the return of The Admiral as more Lil Penny.  David Robinson’s Nike Air Force 180 High from 1991 reminds us of the ad where Moses Malone is said to gift them to Mr. Robinson for the latter’s birthday, though these retro releases will come without the original pressure fit system as we suspected from yesterday’s images.  Instead, we’ll get the OG colorup in what figures to be a much more affordable form, along with the new black edition pictured above that manages a strong throwback vibe thanks to intermingling purple and pink accents.  Check them out individually after the jump and stick with Sneaker News for release info.  via jshortt on NT
