Bringing their Tribute to Charles Barkley to a close, Nike is set to release a pack of Air Force 1s dedicated to Sir Charles’ final destination in the NBA, the Houston Rockets. Perhaps his best, and definitely his last, chance at winning the ever elusive NBA Championship, Charles joined a team that featured several of the greatest players to play the game. Though his game was severely hampered by mounting injuries, Barkley still managed to assist in leading the Rockets into the play-offs each of the three years that he played there. Unfortunately, his ring would never come as the Rockets were eliminated from the play-offs each year.
To celebrate Sir Charles’ tenure with the Houston Rockets, Nike is set to release the “Houston Rockets” Nike Air Force 1 Low CB. Playing off of the Houston Rockets uniform, at the time Charles wore it, the “Houston Rockets” Nike Air Force 1 Low CB features a Grey leather upper with White pinstipes in the mid panel. A White Swoosh sits on the upper and the entire upper sits on a White midsole/sole.
The “Houston Rockets” Nike Air Force 1 Low is set to release on 12/22 at Nike accounts.
