Nike Barkley Posite Max – First Look

November 24, 2012 | 16

It looks as if a new hybrid from Nike is approaching mixing the Air Max Barkley with the Posite line.

The Air Max Barkley is used as the base of the hybrid, taking the shape and outsole from the model. Slight alterations have been made to the upper to complement the Posite-like upper, including the use of a backwards Swoosh and different branding on the sneaker. It has also been mentioned that the shoe is equipped with glow in the dark material on the outsole.

No release information has been given on the shoe itself but TSG will be sure to keep you updated when it arises along with more detailed images.

What do you think of the latest Nike hybrid?

    I’m liking what I see so far. Clearer and more detailed pics, another colorway before I judge too much.

  2. Byanymeans

    These are serious!!

  3. Executive

    Nice shape, looks nice so far.

    I’m not getting why Nike keeps using old players and keep trying to blend in new concepts. I think they should be trying new concepts with new shoes and new players its like they’re overlooking all the players in the league today instead of using Barkeleys and Uptempos and Posites and trying to remodel em and all that. Give this generation something to look back on

    ODing on the foamposite line but these arent the worse thing I have seen in terms of a “hybrid”

  9. MelloYelloMD

    Liking the silhouette and to be honest, i would love to see a Griffey/Posite hybrid.

    This are Fire its great for the sneaker Biz who has been lacking for a while i mean seriously im tired of some retros being re-retro if you know what i mean.

  12. these look like they could potentially be dope. seems like there could be more posite material on the back at the sides though.

    they’ll probably make them next to impossible to cop.

    First thought was “Ahhhhhh hell no Nike wtf!!!!!” but after seeing the somewhat detailed shots….. They really look like Godzilla now….

  14. kickin' it

  15. omar najeeb
