The Nike Air Force 180 first hit the streets in 1992 coming in both a mid top and high. The mid was made famous on the feet of Charles Barkley throughout the 1991-92 season along with his golden run as the leading scorer of the Dream Team in the 1992 Barcelona Olympic Games.
The Nike Air Force 180 High was the last shoe to feature pump system on a Nike shoe. This feature makes the original Nike Air Force 180 Pump a collector’s favorite. The Air Force 180 Pump was worn by David Robinson. The Air Force 180 High finally returned after years in the vault without the Pump and a slightly lower cut giving it the name New Air Force 180 Mid not to be confused with the other 180 Mind.
