The Nike Retro roll-out for 2012 has provided a nice breather for the vintage sneaker hunters out there, with various 90’s classics either confirmed for a release or already having hit retailers. But pre-dating the Air Diamond Turf II and Air Speed Turf Max is one of the most beloved Nike Basketball sneakers of all-time – the Nike Air Command Force of 1991. With the aggressive high-top design, pump module on the heel, intimidating nomenclature, and one of sickest midsoles to ever grace a sneaker, the Command Force represents the end of the design spectrum that defies convention and leaves the viewing public in utter awe.
While the OG Command Force won’t make a return this year (and likely won’t in its original state), Nike Retro fans will be treated with a high-top variation of the Command Force’s cousin – the Air Force 180 High. It’s not often that we get to see a pair of Command Forces in deadstock condition, so bask in the beauty of the Command Force in this rarely-seen White/Black-Bright Green colorway below. If you’d rather stay true to the originals, you’re in luck; this size 10.5 deadstock pair just popped up for sale from pinkauctions on eBay.
