The Return of The Perp Shoe: Barkley Edition


Charles Barkley's not the sharpest knife in the drawer, but he is opinionated, and that's enough to make any former athlete a superstar in the usually bland commentator world. Chuck was once a dominating force in the paint though, and his sneakers were probably the second most popular basketball shoes to Jordans in the 90s. (although Penny Hardaway may take exception to that from wherever he is now). Before he was everyone's favorite goof ball tv analyst and said things were "turrible", Sir Charles was one bad man who, when not tossing fans through windows or mistakenly spitting on little girls, had two of the more memorable Nike ad campaigns: Godzilla vs. Barkley and the iconic "I'm not a role model" commercials.
