To some Charles Barkley was the personification of a rebel on the court. He was the total antithesis of the well-groomed and immaculately mannered Michael Jordan. He brought a rebelliousness to the game not ever seen before, so it is with great pride and nostalgia that Air Force pay homage to the rebel with a basketball, Charles Barkley in his own line of Air Force Ones. Bringing all the elements of Barkley’s shoes on the court comes this Alpha Force Air Force hybrid, marrying the best parts of both shoes to produce a killer combo that will ensure madness on the court. From the Alpha Force II, Nike have taken the foot strap and circa 1990 tongue logo, mixed in some Air Force V (to most, the sturdiest Air Force ever made) with the extra lace holes all the way up past the ankle and combined all this goodness with an Air Force One. The standout feature has to be the perforated leathers and visible air bubble.
