Nike Air Command Force OG – Billy Hoyle couldn’t dunk on command, but he had a nice jumpshot and he wore the baddest kicks. The Nike Air Command Force may have been David Robinson’s signature shoe, but it was White Men Can’t Jump that brought the basketball shoe to popular culture. The shoes were nineties high; big, fat, and way above the ankles. The towering silhouette also housed an air chamber that served the same purpose as the Reebok Pump. The Air Command Force OG is staying true to the original, but Nike is known to release shoes with non-working air chambers. Look for the Air Command Force OG to make a US release very soon.
