Cop or Drop: Nike Air 180 “Grape”

Submitted by on May 22, 2010 – 2:12 pmOne Comment

Although released back in 1991, the Nike Air 180 probably gained most of its notoriety in the sneaker world when Parisian sneaker boutique Opium collaborated with the sneaker titans to create the Nike Air 180 “Opium” in ’05. Since then, the 180′s have been flipped countless times in various colorways. This year has seen (and is anticipating) a few solid releases thus far, but the black/ink (otherwise known as the “Grape”) may be our favorites.

Air Jordan enthusiasts will quickly compare these to the “Aqua” VIII’s (also known commonly to sneakerheads as the “Grapes”), and the comparison is dead-on; this colorway was freaked the same way as the VIII’s, using minimal hints of purple and blue to accent the otherwise black sneaker. You can also see the beautiful 180 degree Air sole unit in the midsole, where the shoe earns its name. The Nike Air 180 “Grape” is now available for pre-order at End.
