Nike has a bunch of big releases in store for this summer’s Olympic Games. In addition to the “Olympic” colorways of the Uptempo and Air Jordan 7, Nike will also be reinstating the Air Force 180. Originally made famous by Charles Barkley who wore them for the 1992 Olympics, the Air Force 180 was last seen during the 2012 London Olympics. The basketball shoes feature a white upper with blue and red accents, capped off with a tinge of gold. While we’re not sure whether Nike will be making any changes to the shoe’s look for 2016, stay tuned and we’ll keep you updated. Expect the kicks to release on July 7 at select Nike stockists.
