Nike Air Command Force – Throwback Thursday
The Nike Air Command Force is a legend for a number of reasons. The shoe was worn and promoted by a young David Robinson, was the choice shoe of Billy Hoyle in White Men Can’t Jump, and the Hot Lime color is as timeless as it is on the Air Tech Challenges. The Air Command Force was an expensive sneaker, even in today’s numbers. With a retail price of $175, the shoe was priced far out of the budgets of many and adjusted to inflation would be the equivalent of $275 today.Despite a pretty big campaign on TV and in magazines promoting the shoe, the price was just too much to bear. The Air Command Force has since arisen from the bottoms of closets demanding pretty high dollars on eBay as it has become a highly saught after vintage shoe. The fragile nature of a 17 year old midsole makes finding a pair in perfect shape next to impossible.

This was also Nike’s second high top shoe to feature the Air Pump technology and was the first to have its own pump built in to the shoe. Still there has not been any talks of these or any of the other David Robinson high top pumps coming back.

Nice Kicks has MANY readers from Beaverton, OR and I am sure those aren’t just kids looking to waste time while in the computer lab…
