Not sure if this has happened to anyone before. I went to look at my original Air Classic BW leather and couldn’t believe my eyes at what happened. Looks like the midsole exploded and created a huge crack from the toe to air bubble. Pretty crazy! Never had this happen to any of my sneakers and I have older pairs than this 1997 BW. I’m thinking it has to do with the encapsulated nitrogen bubbles that they used back then? Just thought I would share in case anyone has any insight as to why this happened. Bummed that they are essentially ruined but I got them for free so not too upset about it.
