Charles Barkley didn’t wear Foamposite during his Hall of Fame NBA career, but his Nike Sportswear hybrid featuring the spage-age injected foam material is doing very well at the moment. The One associated with Penny Hardaway and its Pro counterpart are the Foamposites, but Sir Charles’ prologue gains further significance with this colorway commemorating the NBA team for whom he and Hardaway both played at different points. This ‘Suns’ Nike Barkley Posite Max reminds us that while the two stars in question won gold together with Dream Team III, Barkley played more ball with Godzilla than Penny in Phoenix. The lizard treatment on the foam sections makes you wonder if other Nike signature prints like Elephant or Safari are far behind. It’s a novel approach you’ll want to see up close below, then be sure to check back with Sneaker News for the ‘Phoenix Suns’ Barkley Posite Max release date.
