The headline earlier in the day was that the Nike Air Command Force was indeed returning with a functional pump system (that would explain the $200 price point for the retro sneaker). The shoe served as a reminder of the former days when NBA big men were the players who demanded a signature sneaker. Afterall, the league was jam packed with them – from The Admiral, Ewing, Hakeem, and Shaq, but somewhere down the line brands switched to marketing flashier guards after a certain number 23 started flying to the basket. The adidas D Howard 5 is currently the most recognizable shoe targeted at big men and today we get a look at a new “Away” variety. The pair sports a new checker pattern on the side panels while branding is kept to a minimum excluding that vibrant red adidas logo on the heel.
