#9 Nike Air Force Max

Player: Charles Barkley
Year: 1993
Complex Says: Charles Barkley left Philadelphia in 1992 and the very next season he was named MVP and helped lead the Suns to the NBA Finals. The Round Mound of Rebound played was bodying people in the paint and the perimeter in his Air Force Max shoes. Unfortunately, Chuck lost out to a former — and future — MVP by the name of Michael Jordan in six games and Barkley never made it back to get his ring. We know, it’s turrible.
