The 2013 All-Star Collection just wouldn’t be complete without a Foamposite shoe, but instead of the Air Foamposite One, Nike has decided to use this high-profile platform to introduce the latest Foamposite-based hybrid model – the Nike Barkley Posite Max. Combining the essence of two of Nike’s longest-running signature lines, the Barkley Posite Max captures trademark details of Barkley’s signature shoes, with the Foamposite upper bringing in Penny Hardaway’s influence on the shoe. The outer-space themed colorway adds to the eccentric effect, with a wild confetti-graphic upper being paired with reflective paneling, glow-in-the-dark outsoles, and a gorgeous interior lining. Is this a worthy follow up to the Nike Air Foamposite One ‘Galaxy’? Let us know in the comments below and keep your eye out for a release at select Nike Sportswear retailers on February 14th.
Nike Barkley Posite Max ‘All-Star’
It's gonna be a madhouse for these. Hopefully everyone in my city will be focused on these so that I won't have a problem getting the Galaxy LeBrons the next day.
yup, i got two 2012 galaxy models (rookie and kobe) and the paranorman, and none of them have a really strong glow. camera tricks, y'all!
@NuttyKicks so important you needed to post it 3 times, nice.
Dope. But they obviously don't glow like that. Ppl fallin in love with sneaker photo shoots and not actual, normal-setting shots of the sneakers as is.
These are way to over the top... If you want that kind of attention you're better off buying a pair of those batman shoes from payless that light up everytime you take a step... #preschoolSwag
few days ago when SN first posted these, people was like these are trash! now that they see it glows in the dark they hot now! how fast people switch up when they see it glows.
If dat confetti was a swirl of colors like da inside lining, then they would b solo damm dope... so these are jus OK... I bet wit sum match in elite socks & tshirf it would set off nicely
crack candy! I feel like I need these but when i get em it wont be a big deal. If i get em. Need both CW's.
totally agree, and it's pretty indicative of the entire 12-13 nike basketball line this year. ridiculous neon colorways. it's like their designers fell in love with everything bad about the 80s!
@Mr.CinderSix's How could you possibly always like theses when this hybrid model is new?
@ozzyyooo seriously, it's like nike was creating colorways from 1980s "Trapper Keepers."
