1993 - Nike Air Force Max

Or at least their sneakers. One of the models most associated with the Fab Five is 1993's Nike Air Force Max, which was simultaneously worn in the NBA by Charles Barkley. Imagined by the then-head designer of Nike's ACG line, it was the ultimate rugged and raw basketball sneaker of the early '90s.
