Charles Barkley has a long history with sneakers and has an unprecedented Nike commercial that changed the public’s perspective on athletes.  His sneaker legacy always brings back the adage, “I am not a role model.”


It is a classic statement made from Barkley in a Nike commercial from the 1990′s.  For retro fans, the Charles Barkley shoe is the Nike Air Force 180.  Last year, the Charles Barkley Posite Max was released.  Today, we have leaked pics of the latest shoe to don the Charles Barkley tag, the Chuck Posite.  This years Chuck Posite will never be worn by Barkley on the court, but will instead be a commemoration of Barkley’s playing days.  His name carries the legendary power and strength along with a brash attitude, not fit for role models.  The Chuck Posite looks to reflect the Charles Barkley image of unstoppable post move dunks to ball slapping boards.  The new Chuck Posite brings the posite upper together with a futuristic styling, bringing Barkley’s 7th shoe release up to date.  Here are some pics of the shoe followed by a timeline of Charles Barkley moments.  No US release date has been confirmed, but the China release will be October 1st which could be a similar release date for the US.  There will also be multiple colorways available.  This Silver Metallic colorway below will be the first release.
