First Look: The New Nike Barkley Posite
words // Brandon Richard
Last year, Marc Dolce and Nike Sportswear modernized Charles Barkley's signature line with the launch of the Barkley Posite Max. Elements from Barkley's past models were fused together in a new Foamposite constructed package.
Now, 30 years after Sir Charles signed his deal with Nike, we get our first look at the Barkley Posite sequel. Rumored to be named the Chuck Posite, this sneaker was on display at Kicks Mart in Beijing this weekend. Sharply angled silver Foamposite with carbon fiber detailing highlights the sleek, new silhouette, which also features a classic Barkley looped lacing system. Visible Max Air is out of the mix and a blue-tinted translucent sole seals the deal below.
Release details for the Chuck Posite are unknown at the moment. Since these images leaked earlier this morning, the response has generally been positive. What is your first impression of Barkley's new kicks?
