Despite the appeal of LeBrons, KDs, and even Air Pennys, mo’ Barkley is what Nike Basketball fans continue to demand. We’ve already confirmed the re-release of the Air Max 2 Strong (not an official Barkley sig, but he’s worn it before), but hitting stores once again is the Nike Air Force Max, which has re-released quite a number of times over the last decade. The Air Force Max has indeed been confirmed for a Spring 2013 release at $140 (twenty years after its original release) in the OG Black/Grey/White as well as a number of newer colorways that should give this forgotten model some more depth, so let us know if you have any of the previous Retros still waiting to be rocked or if you’re looking to replenish your stash!

this is a classic, not a forgotten sneaker by any means. got a fresh pair from 08' very near deadstock
Yep 2000 was the best just wore the wh/blk purple cw the other day didn't really wanted them retro I would take the blk cw tho every time they come out they sit on the shelf
still got a pair deadstock in the closet. i killed my other pair back in highschool. love these barkleys! the white black and blue ones were tough too!
Hopefully their not gonna kill it like they did in 07. The 2000 retro was the best. The other ones were lame, bad tongue and the shape was messed up
I jus copped the 06's last mnth. Thinking Nike might mess em up. Might have 2 double up for the 1st time.
All you need is a vintage Michigan #5 jersey and the vintage 'NIKE AIR' black socks and you'll be ready to ball. Def. Cop for me I copped the last retros of these but I want a new pair.
Don't really rock trainers like this anymore, but hands down these are classics!!! So much history, and they look ill!!!
...copped a pair in HAWAII back in 07-08.Ended up balling in them...highly durable.And the FAB-5 used to rock these,too.
Yessss. Finally. I eff'd mine up using em at a fast food joint i used to work at. The grease really wore down the soles fast.
