Before Barkley was making us laugh w/ his marble mouth filled commentarty, he was a very athletic big guy on the court in Pheonix. And before that, he was a Philly 76er wearing some kicks something like these….only w/ out the posite matierial and not quite as fresh. But these will be releasing later this year, or if you can wait, a few are available on ebay from PRC.Kicks.
It appears that Nike is aiming to reacquaint us with some unheralded Barkley models as we approach the release of the Foamposite-based Barkley hybrid shoe. One such model is the Air Max 2 Strong, which features the unique heel-strap and the neoprene bootie fit and classic ‘FORCE’ emblem at the tongue. This simpler Black/White colorway definitely serves as a simpler option compared to that ‘Godzilla’ print in the Suns colorway, so if you’re in the lookout for these, check Nike Sportswear Basketball retailers soon because Sneaker Politics has these ready to go at their Lafayette and Baton Rouge locations.
