Year: 1987-1988
Sneaker: Nike Air Force II, Nike Alpha Force
Key Stats: 28.3 ppg, 11.8 rpg

Charles Barkely made the Alpha Force and Air Force II some of the most memorable sneakers from the late '80s thanks to the Round Mound of Rebound's 28 points and nearly 12 boards per game. Despite the numbers, All-Star appearances and All-NBA First Team awards, Barkley and the 76ers couldn't get the most coveted hardware. Barkley did land a signature sneaker line from Nike shortly after, despite not being a role model.
