Charles Barkley is one of the most outstanding NBA players of all time. Thus it is to no-ones surprise that Nike will bring out with him a pretty large line-up of Air Force 1′s as part of the 25th anniversary celebrations of the shoe.
Here we present you one of the most interesting and at the same time exciting releases of that collection – the “Alpha Force” AF1.
“Starting at the bottom of the tongue, the horizontal strap is that of the Alpha Force II. One of the last Nike Force shoes that Barkley wore before being granted his own signature line. Going up the tongue, you will see lace holes at the top like that of the Air Force V – one of the most sturdy basketball shoes made to date. Lastly, at the top of the tongue is the circa 1990 “Air Force” logo with the basketball again from the early Air Force products that Barkley wore.” Via Nice Kicks.
There is no exact release date so far, but expect these to come out some time in October.
