Anyone that knows me knows that I absolutely love Nike. There is NO competition on the sneaker market that is seeing the Swoosh. Whether its innovation, style and cultural importance, I am behind Nike 100%. As a sneakerhead, I would love to head to Beaverton, Oregon and do a collab shoe but we all know that you have to be somebody to get that right. Years ago, Nike introduced Nike iD to common folk, like you and I, to create our own colorways of some of our favorite silhouettes. Recently, Nike added the Air 180 to the Nike iD sight and I went bonkers. The Nike Air 180 is my favorite running silhouette ever. With the chance to make any colorway that I want to, I decided to play with the options and create my own concepts.
With the recent release of the Nike Mag creating all sorts of ruckus, I decided to do my own take on the classic shoe. Using Nike iD, I created the “McFly” Air 180.
For this particular pair of 180s, I used a neutral grey mesh base (as silver wasn’t featured) and added a neutral grey suede overlay. Much like the Air Mag, I used a white swoosh and white laces. The Air Mag never did feature any color outside of grey, white and teal, so I looked at the “McFly” Air Max Hyperdunk and its use of pink and added solar red to my pair. Solar red is a new hue used by Nike that actually resembles more pink than red. Solar red is actually featured on the tongue binding and air bag of my shoe. For the teal look, I used chlorine blue on the heel, midsole speckle, outsole and the tongue logo. For the remainder of the outsole, I decided to go with black as it is my favorite color.
Here’s my “McFly” Nike Air 180s. What do you think?
