Nike Air Force 180 “Olympic”

Charles Barkley declared that he was not a role model in his Nike commercial, but that did nothing to keep the sneakers he wore throughout his NBA career from becoming iconic. From the Air Force 180 to the Air Max2 CB 94, Barkley’s footwear helped create a lasting legacy as significant as his talent. Barkley’s popularity is evidenced in the decades of many retro releases.

First spotted on the feet of Barkley's during the unbeaten 1992 Dream Team and again for the 1996 Olympic team, charles would go on to have a perfect 16-0 career Olympic record while playing in the Nike Air Force 180 “Olympic” and some of his other iconic shoes.


Last retrod in 2012, the Nike Air Force 180 “Olympic” originally released back in 1992 The Nike Air Force 180 “Olympic” is set to release on July 7th, 2016 at Nike Sportswear retailers across the globe.
