    Urban Industries has a nice batch of 180s for really good prices. Picked up the brown/rust pink joints for $83 shipped to the US. Been going back and grabbing sneakers I genuinely just like based on cws/materials/models since my wife and I will be saving for a house soon. It’s been an onslaught of cops all month and I had to have these since I seen pics this summer.

    Hanon has a good run of the bacon and b/yellow for the low
     

  3. Yea but lets be honest here, the retro is NOT as comfortable as the original not even close. ASICS somehow has figured out how to make damn near all of their retro's just as comfortable if not more comfortable than the original. That's how it should be not the other way around.

    ^^ This.

    It had the biggest air unit of any Nike Air shoe. It’s supposed to be comfortable. Stepping on the heel of my Air Tech Challenge 3 retro from 2015 is more comfortable than the current 180.

    They can put a large air bag on the 270. They made the Concord 11 really close to the original. There is no reason why they can’t make the 180 with a huge air bag and the correct shape.

    No wonder the 180s are on sale under $100.

    they sold over 1 million from the concord 11, i doubt that there are 1 million peeps would buy the 180, even if they make an 1:1 retro from them and also i think that it is cheaper for nike to adjust shape from the 11s because there are less panels on the upper from the shoes and no visible air compared to the 180s, over 2 years is the 30th anniversary if they then not gonna adjust the shape and the air unit from the 180 they will probably never do it

    It’s funny how they will work to fix certain shoes and then literally do nothing to fix others. Look at the recent Air Max Light 2 retro. That looks really good but who knows about the comfort. Again, the Tech Challenge 3 from 2015 is a fantastic retro. Yet, any classic Bo Jackson trainer from that era always gets so so materials. Yeah hard to predict. At some point Nike remade that 180 air bag to be so wide and flat. Worst decision ever.

    Haha, I touched the 40 last year. I have registered myself due to the Air Span II in 2018 but I'm not as active as before so I called myself Pensioner due to a lack of inspiration :smile:

    Rounded up forefoot/toebox (banana toe), more rounded toe box, shorter tongue, taller shoe overall, taller heel support, much bigger airbag, and of course forefoot air.

    What we have now is not OG.
