    1985 Charles Barkley Game Worn & Signed Philadelphia 76ers Rookie Era Sneakers. Has there ever been a basketball player the size of Charles Barkley with his skill set? Standing just 6-4 ½ tall (yes, he was listed at 6-6), Sir Charles played both the small forward and power forward positions, which is unheard of in the modern game. Still he managed to post up and outrebound much taller opponents with brute strength and unnatural leaping ability. He even holds the distinction of being the shortest man to ever lead the NBA in rounding. Despite playing between 252 and 285 pounds, he would routinely go coast-to-coast, using his deadly combination of speed and ball handling ability to fly by the quickest players in the league. A legendary leaper, his first pro coach tells a story how Charles came to training camp overweight at 302 pounds yet was still able to stand directly under the basket and dunk flat-footed off either foot.

    Presented here is an exceedingly rare pair of Barkley worn rookie era Nike sneakers. Showcasing a superb vintage signature (light ink) on each, the size 15.5 kicks are date stamped to "1985". Heavy wear exhibited throughout. LOA from Heritage Auctions. Auction LOA from SGC Authentic.
