A few days ago, the Air Max connoisseur, aka Master of Air, Iceberg posted a picture of the Nike Air Max 180 on IG and announced a re-release for 2024. If he says so, it must be true. All information about the shoe and the release can be found here in the article.
The “Master of Air” Karl Lashnikov aka Iceberg knows what's going on. If you don't know him, you're either very young or, well, just follow him. Or read this post. Nike is starting with a Big Bubble project. We should all be on the same level for that. So here's a little history lesson.
THE STORY OF NIKE AIR AND THE BUBBLE
The Air Bubble or the invention of Nike Air in 1987 was a revolution for the brand. But what many do not know: the originally planned larger bubble of the Air Max 1 was larger than today. Wear tests, however, revealed the fragility of the “Big Bubble”, forcing Nike to shrink the first visible bubble to withstand the pressures of competitive sport. Since then, the Air Bubble System has been mass-produced and slightly smaller bubbles.
BIG BUBBLE ANNOUNCEMENT
In March 2022, Jamie Paige, Manager of the Air Max product line, said in a SNKRS -APP live stream that the Air Max 1 '86 “Big Bubble” should be released in 2023. According to Paige, the process of recreating the '80s pattern took three years, but it would finally be here shortly after the silhouette's 35th anniversary. The return of the OG OG Air Max 1 was exciting in itself, but what's even more exciting for Air Max series collectors is that there may be other “Big Bubble” retro models to come as well. And the 180 Air Max should be there.
THE AIR MAX 180 OG
The Air Max 180 may not celebrate its anniversary until 2026, but rumors that it will be one of the first models to receive Nike's “Big Bubble” update persist. And if Iceberg says so, it must be true. The OG colourway “Ultramarine” was last released in 2018. And everyone who slept there now has another chance at the dreamy silhouette. And maybe the critics are lucky and the silhouette comes in the OG shape, because that was criticized for a long time, as with many Air Max models. We are super excited about this announcement because we are fans of the silhouette.
