The new school 180 was not really a big hit with me because of the stocking upper taking away from the leather satin of the original. The fit was like a glove though and very comfortable but the OG in me yearned for the original. The next thing i know pow! Nike vintage box and out comes the original 180 silhouette. Intact with the vintage dust look that Nike applies to all their vintage releases the 180 takes you back to its original form and feel. Both are a excellent cop but i see the OG's going for the vintage.

Nike Georgetown presents the "We Run DC" collection, an exclusive three-shoe set commemorating the inaugural Nike Women Half Marathon in Washington, D.C.
The trio of shoes represents the journey and active lifestyle of the women who have trained so hard to prepare for Sunday’s Nike Women Half Marathon in Washington, D.C. The Nike Free 5.0+ DC serves as the ultimate training tool for running; the Nike Roshe Woven DC celebrates active women's style with a unique new design; and the Nike Studio Wrap Pack provides inspiration for pre- or post-race stretching and yoga.
The Roshe Run Woven DC and Studio Wrap Pack are now available exclusively at Nike Georgetown, while the Free 5.0+ DC is also available at select specialty running retailers.
The Roshe in this pack would be a definite pick up for me if i could find then in a Mens size. The woven prism look is amazing.
