What's Going on With This Frankenstein Nike Shoe?

Nike channels some of Charles Barkley's DNA on this new model, which also manages to pull in some other cues for a weird mash-up style.

There's tooling from the Nike Air Max2 CB 94 and a no-lace upper that looks just a bit like Gary Payton's "The Glove" Zoom Flight 98. The most striking piece of design here is the gigantic Swoosh, its backward orientation feeling almost like a Dennis Rodman Air Darwin reference.

Fittingly, the shoe is named after its most noticeable trait—this model is called the Big Swoosh.

Kicks USA has sizes of the bold Big Swoosh in stock now.
