Air Jordan 8 ‘Suns'($200)
ShoeRelease-7

In 1993 the Bulls defeated the Suns in the NBA Championship making history and became one of four teams to ever 3-peat; only for Micheal Jordan to retire that off season. With this amazing feat accomplished the sports world wondered why Jordan would step away when he is clearly at his peak, citing off-court issues as the motive. The Air Jordan 8 was the shoe Micheal wore while he was averaging 41 pts and shooting an amazing 50% from the field on the biggest stage in basketball. In timely fashion (play-off time), Jordan Brand has decided to commemorate the 20th anniversary of this moment in Air Jordan history by releasing it in a Phoenix Suns color-way. In my opinion these shoes almost pay homage to one of Micheal Jordan’s closest friends and fiercest competitors, Charles Barkley.

Nike Barkley Posite Max ‘Suns’ ($280)
ShoeRelease-18

Sticking with the Phoenix Suns theme the newest color-way of the Nike Barkley Posite Max is inspired by Charles Barkley’s playing days in the desert. It combines some of Nikes most loved technology with a Foamposite upper and Air Max cushioning. The Foam upper seems to have what I think resembles ‘Dry lake’ or ‘Cracked Mud’ that you would typically find in a desert setting.

ShoeRelease-19
If this particular color-way is not your style you can surely appreciate its great design and its thoughtful, nostalgic details. This is easily my favourite of them all. Charles Barkley is known for having a very brash personality and speaking his mind on many topics. The phrase ‘I’m not a role model’ may be his most notorious sound bite to this day and the shoe designer Marc Dolce did a great job of integrating it into the shoe.

As usual doors open at 10am, so get there early! Don’t sleep!
