Nike is (finally) bringing Air Command Force out of the archives for the first time this Saturday. Originally released in 1990, the super high-top sneaker was known for having an Air-Fit system – an inflatable bladder that supported above, behind, and below the ankle that could be inflated by pressing the lateral side of the shoe, and deflated by pushing the button on the heel. Like the O.G., the Air-Fit system is fully functional on the retro version.
The Air Command Force crossed over into pop culture in the 1992 film “White Men Can’t Jump,” when it was worn by the character of Billy Hoyle. See our “White Men Can’t Jump”-inspired shots below, and look for the Nike Air Command Force to launch on November 8 for $200.
