Still Making Sneakers After 29 Years: Nike Basketball & Charles Barkley


 Still Making Sneakers After 29 Years: Nike Basketball & Charles Barkley eukicks

Charles Barkley entered the NBA in 1984 as a Philadelphia 76er with a Nike contract. The union has lasted 29 years that spanned numerous ads that became pop culture pieces that defined the era. Ads that saw Barkley squaring off with Godzilla in downtown Tokyo, dominating the giant lizard. Of course, the post memorable moment was the “I am not a role model” ad that sparked controversy for its blunt message about the role of athletes as community leaders. Nike also created numerous signature sneakers for Sir Charles.

Referencing that rich history, Nike Basketball has created the Barkley Posite Max.

The new lifestyle model honors his shoes of the past with an aesthetic of the future. Designer Marc Dolce took inspiration from a trip to a museum dinosaur exhibit and combined those ideas with iconic elements of past Barkley shoes.

This is the sixth basketball sneaker created for Barkley and it references his past kicks like the Air Max2 CB 94 and Air Force Max.

Check out the video and images bellow.

The kicks will be dropping in limited numbers through dealers globally until August with one colorway releasing each month. The kicks debuted in February, released again in March and are releasing in the States 76ers style on Saturday.
