The shoe maintains a legacy as one of Nike’s most expensive original models. It was never re-released, as the cost of replicating the system likely outweighs the nostalgic or monetary gain of the endeavor. When it originally released in 1991, the Air Force 180 High fetched $175, and with inflation, that would mean a tag of about $275 today. So it’s safe to say this model isn’t high on the priority retro list. But in the resale market, this shoe can see price tags of anywhere between $1,000 and $3,000, depending on the condition of the model. There’s something that can’t be duplicated about a sneaker with all of these bells and whistles, maybe the only chance most people will ever have to see these will be at conventions behind plastic
