Classic Commercial: Nike Air Force 180 with Charles Barkley
words // Zack Schlemmer
Out of no where, the original black-based colorway of the Nike Air Force 180 Mid re-released late last year. It came with basically no warning or promotion, showing up seemingly randomly at select sneaker boutiques and mall sneaker shops. Its unannounced return seems to have caused it to slip through the cracks of the sneaker market in early 2014. Hell, the Air Force 180 is one of my favorite basketball sneakers ever, and I just now got around to ordering a pair myself. To help make sure the return of one of the shoe's best colorways doesn't go totally unnoticed, today we'll celebrate with a Classic Commercial from 1991 featuring Charles Barkley and the OG version. Watch as Chuck explains what it takes to be a great rebounder, and then go pick up a pair of the black/white/blue Air Force 180 while you still can.
