Nike Big Swoosh (Gym Red/White)
Basketball in the 1990s was a wild and fun time for fashion, with the big sports brands seeing relaxed uniform codes as an opportunity to go as nuts as possible. Charles Barkley was a huge personality and Nike rightly laced him up in crazy signature sneakers, Gary Payton was not as big a presence but Nike still served him up a memorable slip-on shoe. This new design from Nike, the appropriately titled 'Nike Big Swoosh', is a hybrid of both of those lines in a way, with a slippery one-piece upper, redolent of Payton's The Glove, sat on a Max air-bubbled sole with mean white teeth shining bright up front.
The Nike Big Swoosh 'Gym Red/White' is now available at Packer Shoes.
