The Nike Barkley Posite Max’s latest “Rayguns” inspired colorway has proven to be an example of how a company can throw many aesthetic features onto one sneaker.
Whether the multitude of details is a good or bad thing is in the eye of the beholder, but the Barkley Posite Max provides a strange narrative on how people’s opinions are so diverse when it comes to one thing, in this case, the shoe that does (or does not) too much.
The example above represents the topic to its fullest, as the Barkley brings a lot to the table. Multi-colored upper, 3M panel, special branding, and that’s just scratching the surface.
In some cases, it’s blatantly obvious that a brand is trying to mix everything they want together regardless if it works with the sneaker model and in others, despite having so many details to look at, the shoe somehow pulls it off.
Can there ever be too many details on a sneaker?
