Footwear Flashback: Charles Barkely Posts Big Double Double in Nike Air Force Max


Long before Charles Barkley was commentating on the NBA Playoffs, he was dominating them. The NBA’s 1993 MVP would put on perhaps the best game of his storied season in Game 7 of the Western Conference Finals. Facing a strong Seattle frontcourt led by Shawn Kemp and Sam Perkins, the power forward would stand the tallest, grabbing 24 boards and dropping 44 points in the series clinching win. He did so in the playoff-ready Nike Air Force Max.
