These Charles Barkley Rockets-inspired Air Force Max CB’s are fire

NBA legend Charles Barkley ended his career with the Houston Rockets, and he and Nike are now paying homage to those few seasons.

According to SneakerNews.com, there is a new pair of Nike Air Force Max CB’s that pay homage to the Rockets, and they must be copped ASAP:

Offering a layered red leather-and-nubuck base, these ’90s classics then add contrast via a navy midfoot Swoosh and navy buckle on the criss-crossing lockdown system straps. However, their most noticeable detail arrives on the heel, which features white pinstripes on its navy base and the Round Mound Of Rebound’s #4 on the tabs for an obvious nod to the classic jerseys the franchise sported in the late ’90s-early ’00s. Down below, a red, navy, and white midsole offers further contrast, while the black outsole features a bold Nike logo and a red piece towards the forefoot, complete with a circular traction pattern that sharp-eyed sneaker lovers may recognize from the Air Jordan 7.

They are $150 and can be bought online at Nike here.

Barkley, 56-year-old NBA Hall of Famer, is now an analyst on “Inside the NBA” on TNT and is often known for his eccentric comments.

He joined the Rockets ahead of the 1996-7 season, and eventually ended his 16-year career, retiring in 2000.

These shoes are pretty sick, even if you aren’t a Rockets fan.
