The Nike Air 180 “Opium” was a collaboration between Nike and Paris sneaker boutique Opium.

In 2005, Nike brought back the Air 180 which was originally released in 1991. At that time, the revolutionary shoe contained fifty percent more air than previous Air Max models. The technology was also displayed through a protective outsole.

The Nike Air 180 “Opium” edition was extremely limited and only available at a select list of image retailers worldwide.
