Long associated with the likes of Charles Barkley, as well as Michigan’s Fab Five, Nike‘s Air Force Max is making a comeback later this year with a brand new look. This fall, the old ’90s kicks are getting the “Wheat”-like “Flax” treatment. Like past “Flax” drops, the design is marked by a look reminiscent of work boots and comes with a predominately nubuck upper. Additional details include the likes of a contrasting white midsole and gum rubber outsole.

The Air Force Max “Flax” will hit NSW spots in the latter months of 2017.
