Nike Air 180 ‘Urban Safari’ Pack | Nike Lunar Air 180 ‘10 Years of Obsession’ | Nike Blazer | Nike Air Max 1 ‘Dave White’ | Nike Air Stab ‘Dave White’ | size? Previews 2023 – Episode 6
An all-new size?previews is back! This time around we decided to do something a little different by revisiting some of our ?exclusive projects with Beaverton label Nike. Over the past couple of decades, we’ve been able to work on some really special silhouettes, so it goes without saying that there's going to be some grails in the episode. Let’s look back.
Nike Air 180 ‘Urban Safari’ Pack -?exclusive
Starting things off is a definitive running silhouette since its creation in ‘91, the revolutionary Nike Air 180 boasts a bigger and better Air unit than its siblings. For the ‘Safari Pack’, we opted for mixed material uppers to deliver a textured feel while unmistakable pops of colour and the Safari print heel wrap adds bags of character. A legendary model in all respects, there was no question that this was a silhouette we wanted to work on and give the ?exclusive touch to. With a more ostentatious nature, the pack broke the mould offering a more contemporary take on the shoe.
Nike Lunar Air 180 ‘10 Years of Obsession’ - ?exclusive
Released as part of our 10th-anniversary celebrations in 2010, next up is the Nike Lunar Air 180 which was inspired by the original colourway of the Air Terra ACG. Uppers are decked out with suede and mesh panelling to perfectly complement the Air Luna midsole which features that ACG speckling. Brimming with retro notes, the 180’s construction is something of a masterpiece.
Nike Blazer - ?exclusive
Over the last few years, there’s no question that we’ve had a wealth of ?exclusive Nike releases, and one of our favourite and most celebrated is the Blazer. Available in only 500 pairs to our size? community, we gave the famed basketball shoe a simple execution with a rich suede upper and tumbled leather on the Swoosh insignias, as well as our logo sitting proudly on the heel.
Nike Air Max 1 ‘Dave White’ - ?exclusive
We first worked with Dave White way back in ‘05 on a pack that included the 'big three' - a collection of icons that brought the revolutionary Air Max line to the masses. Our Air Max 1 is draped in the signature colours of Sergio Lozano’s legendary shoe, with black, grey and neon yellow suede covering the upper while 3M laces also nod to the Air Max 95 OG's 'Neon' reflective accents - one of Dave’s favourite colourways.
Nike Air Stab ‘Dave White’ - ?exclusive
Limited to 400 pairs, the Air Stab was one of our most famed releases with Nike. Abbreviating stability, the Air Stab was inaugurated during the late 80s, giving the renowned Air unit a more substantial structure than other releases of the era. Radiating nostalgia, the silhouette employs an eye-catching aesthetic of jagged triangular shapes that cross over the Air unit on the midsole. Simply iconic.
