We’re officially in the homestretch: The Nike Air Force 180 Olympic release date is less than a month away, one of a number of classic Olympic-themed retros that return to shelves on July 7.
Today, celebrate that imminence with a long-awaited look at the 2016 Nike Air Force 180 Olympic, a historically faithful revival if ever there were one.
Originally laced up by Charles Barkley at the 1996 Olympics in Atlanta — all of that team’s classic Nikes are back this year in fact; 20th anniversary and all that — the Air Force 180 sports a patriotic mix of white and navy leather and red accents. On a more celebratory note — Dream Team III went on to win gold, after all — gold touches appear on the heel, strap, tongue and midsole.
The Nike Air Force 180 Olympic release date is officially slated for Thursday, July 7.
