Sneaker customizer Laptop LaSane pays tribute to not one, but two of powerful big-men with this sneaker custom – Charles Barkley, who once terrorized the league by playing larger than his size, and Blake Griffin, whose throwdowns are as vicious as they are entertaining. While neither player has had the distinction of shattering an NBA backboard, both have that power-dunking style that have defenders cowering in fear whenever they elevate above the rim. We almost never see the Nike Air Max2 CB ’94 be used as a custom, but Laptop LaSane does quite the job by implementing the colors of the Western Conference All-Stars and creating an elephant-print style graphic mimicking a shattered backboard. A full gallery is below so take a look and let us know what you think!
