Nike Air Max Barkley HOH - Obsidian/Team Orange-White

We have here a look at the Nike Air Max Barkley "HOH" (House of Hoops). This is not a official word, but judging by these colors I'm guessing that this colorway was inspired by the University Of Auburn where Charles attended. The sneaker is made up of a micro-perforated synthetic obsidian upper, with "Team Orange" covering the accents everywhere from the branding to the inner-lining. Last but not least you will find a little white hints along the outsole and tongue branding creating a beautiful colorway.
