After we revealed that the Nike Air Command Force made popular by David Robinson in the early '90s would be seeing a return this year, it looks like another classic sneaker from the Swoosh will be re-releasing. Originally made available in 1997, the Nike Air Bakin was Tim Hardaway's go-to sneaker with the Miami Heat and was crossing everyone up when he laced these on court.
For the most part, the Nike Air Bakin stays true to O.G. form with its black mesh and red leather make-up. An obvious omission, though, is the "Air" branding on the heel that stirred up controversy when the sneaker first released because of its likeness to "Allah" in Arabic text.
The Bakin is set to release on Saturday, April 5 on Nike.com and select Nike retailers like Villa. Pick up a pair this weekend and practice that killer crossover after you lace them up.
