Long before LeBron James ever laced up a pair of basketball sneakers, Charles Barkley was putting extreme wear and tear on Nikes of his own. The Air Force 180 Low was Barkley's weapon of choice during his last days in Philadelphia and his first in Phoenix - as well as on his little summer trip to Barcelona. Where the 180 runner was sleek, the Air Force 180 was bruising, more like a boot than a sneaker. Which was perfect for Sir Charles.
