The Nike Barkley Posite Max has burst onto the scene as one of the year’s hottest new designs. The innovative design along with the frequency, or lack there of, of releases have contributed to the shoe’s quick rise in popularity. On Saturday, April 20, another colorway will be added to the young model’s line. Energy/Fire is the official colorway but the “Sixers” nickname that the pair sports might give you a better idea of what these kicks look like. Charles Barkley, the shoe’s namesake and inspiration, was drafted fifth overall in the 1984 NBA Draft by Philadelphia and played for the team from 1984 – 1992. Predominantly covered in energy (blue), this Barkley Posite sports fire (red) accents throughout. A blue tinted glow in the dark outsole is complemented by a speckled Air bubble in the heel.
The Nike Barkley Posite Max “Sixers” drops on Saturday, April 20 at Foot Locker, House of Hoops by Foot Locker, and online at Footlocker.com for $235. Check the Launch Locator here to see which stores are getting this release.
