Attention Charles Barkley fans: We have a grail-status sneaker for you! Surfacing at Index PDX is this original Nike Air Force Max PE created for Charles Barkley in his size 16 from 1993. Worn throughout the ’92-’93 NBA season all the way to the NBA Finals against Michael Jordan and the Bulls, these features the still-never-retroed OG white, black, and purple colorway of the Air Force Max with the addition of his #34 embroidered on each ankle. Made famous by Charles Barkley and Michigan’s Fab Five back in ’93, the Air Force Max was also the first Nike Basketball shoe to utilize Air Max cushioning.
Somehow perfectly preserved over the last 24 years, you can get a detailed look at the rare pair in all their glory here. And if you decide that you can’t live without epic piece of Charles Barkley sneaker history, cop them while they last at Index.
