Nike Air Max Terra 180: an Oreo-alike execution

Are we still calling the Nike Air Lunar 180 the Air Max Terra 180? Umm, okay. We still think it 's the rubberised toe cap that makes it Terra, but it's always gonna be a Lunar 180 to us. Black and white on a shoe is a classic colourway and the decision to make that Lunarlon a speckled white to highlight the beloved air unit that had us catching the holy ghost in 1991 works nicely. In an era where every Air Max is getting remix after remix after remix (though we've never really considered the 180 canon in the Air Max saga, even though it took that notion of maximum, visible air to the next level when it debuted). Naturally this Black/Dark Charcoal/Metallic Silver edition was destined to get the Oreo nickname, but it's a menacing looking creation that makes the most of the narrow, angular 180 silhouette — a gothic serving of cookies and cream. This is one of the better updates to a sacred relic of the shoe world and it's nice to know that when this drops next month, there's a couple of reissues of the non-Lunar variety dropping as Quickstrikes (previously unretroed colourways from back in the day). Nike is really going in with the black Max makeups for winter and these are a good addition. Expect these in early November alongside some other solid Nike rereleases, new silhouettes and fusions.
