Let’s be honest here – this is the early-90’s Force shoe that Nike fanatics have been waiting for. The Air Command Force, David Robinson’s signature shoe, was one of Nike’s earliest and last ventures into the “air pump” trend of sneakers that signified Reebok’s entire 90s catalog of shoes. It’s arguable that Nike did it best with this super-high top sneaker, although recent Retro releases suggested that if a Command Force would ever happen, it would come without the gimmicky pump. However, that doesn’t seem to be the case with this upcoming Retro release, because the Air Command Force Retro will in fact feature the original build, although the add-ons could be entirely cosmetic. Check back with us soon for more on this Air Command Force bringback and let us know if you plan on picking these up.

Those shoes are heavy as heck. I had them back in the day, made for a PF or C of course, thus David Robinson's shoe. Great fit for the jeans though.
I havent dunked in about 7 years but im shittin on somebody on the court in these. That pumped would've killed it but they still dope.
God has spoken, i haven't been amped for a pair sneakers for a long time. Revive the sneaker game nike.
IN ALL HONESTY I FEEL THE NEED TO THANK NIKE.I WOULD LIKE TO PERSONALLY THANK YOU FOR THIS RELEASE.THROUGHOUT THE LAST FEW YEARS,US SNEAKERS HEADS HAVE BEEN SUPPORTING NIKE AS A BRAND AND REALLY FELT AT TIMES LET DOWN, BUT THE RETRO THE BILLY HOYLE'S IS COMPARABLE TO HALLEY'S COMET OR SOME SHIT, AND BY THE LOOKS OF IT THEY HAVE THE PUMP SYSTEM AND ALL THAT(THE BEST PART). THEY EVEN GOT THE AIR PRESSURE RELEASE HOLE ON THE OUTSIDE ANKLES... #WHITEMANCANTJUMP #GRAILS
@Staxx13 WORD UP....
BY THE LOOKS OF IT THE PUMP IS THERE...
Its got da makeup of da pump but its jus a cosmetic thing. Shoes don't have da actually pump in them like da OGs... They need to ask Reebok fa dat
@diabolicalsyndicate what the hell lol. Its just shoes man, calm down lol
How do you figure that? I think going from the poor excuse for a retro last year to a "cosmetic only" upgrade is ridiculous. I would hope that Nike would be smarter than that. I'm also sure that a functional pump would result in more sales, even at a higher price tag.
My guy dat wks at Nike said da pump isn't there. It jus looks like it does... But he did say they were in da works of makin a pump version but they need to ask Reebok fa permission to use it since Reebok patent da pump technology. And u know Nike is all about they money. So I doubt they would give Reebok a portion of sneaker sales jus to accommodate OG enthusiasts.. So no pump in these yo
