Charles Barkley’s signature sneaker line with Nike continues to receive an honorary service as we get a look at the latest Barkley-inspired hybrid. This time, it features Foamposite material – a true first for the Barkley; it features a Foamposite upper construction with design cues taken from the classic Nike Air Max2 CB ’94. Surrounding features like the new ‘CB’ badge on the heel and a ‘Not A Role Model’ traction detailing outsole complete one of the most surprising heriage-inspired models we’ve seen. What are your thoughts on Foamposite hitting the Barkley line? Would you like to see a true new Barkley signature shoe (like the Penny V is for Hardaway?). More shots below, so take a look and look out for these to hit Spring 2013 for $235.

these are raw. If they didnt have the two names attatched and was just a new foam model yall would love these.
well, nike got one thing right... if penny hardaway and charles barkley booty porked, their seed would def be this ugly
lets be real yo they straight now but 235 hell fuck no call me cheap if you like but not me i bet u nike will be like gucci and dolce in the next few years fine ill go bk to chucks i still got a shit load
they look cool, but the folks over at nike must be f*cking idiots if they seriously think they're going to move a bunch of these at $235! i would not pay a cent over $150., and THAT'S pushing it...
This is what happens after the creative minds at Nike all crash and you can't retro any other sneaker. Now you bring back sneakers and throw the word posite on the end.. Nike has to branch out and find new designers. These are over priced but Nike doesn't care because ppl still find a way to buy them and that's all the brand cares about.. This is only the beginning for 2013 releases.. NIKE just beginning to get their hands on some of your income tax return!!
I really like da design & look like they feel comfortable as hell. Da bottoms are xtra fly too... but 235???... cmon bro. Does it come wit an autograph & an escort wit ur purchase lol... only shoes I pay over 200 fa is penny foams & ima keep it dat way. But they'll b at a outlets I think
Nice shoe... 235?!? Hyperposites get tons of shelf life & these might sit with em! Too many CW's and an ridiculous price make shoes easy to over look!
I may be the only one that likes them but they need to get rid of the gem swoosh. It looks out of place and doesn't belong.
Nike is going to rape this foam shit for all it's worth. Aye, people are gonna continue to buy it so why not.
UM.... PENNY DOESNT HAVE A RING EITHER
