The Max is back! While a lone 'Flax' Max wandered across our desks earlier this year, this release pack signals that Charles Barkley's beloved NikeAir Force Max is set for a major comeback in 2018.
When it debuted in 1993, the basketball sneaker aimed to combine the best of the Air Force and Air Max lines. It was an ambitious task, but it worked.
Not a whole lot has changed with this new Air Force Max iteration. The sole, the strap, the Air Max branding, the Air unit... it's like we've been transported back to '93. The navy and tan models on offer sport slick tonal uppers that see the shoes slide seamlessly into the 21st century. It makes for a perfect blend of 90s nostalgia and contemporary construction.
No release date has been set for either model just yet, but we'll be sure to let you know as further info blows towards us in that hot Air Force Max breeze.
