Amar’e Stoudemire Just Doesn’t Care About Your Basketball Shoes, OK Nike?

STATistically will not wear this.

Amar’e Stoudemire just doesn’t care about your basketball shoes, Nike.

As sneaker followers have come to know this season (and we’ve detailed here and here), Amar’e is quite obsessed about sticking to his Nike Zoom Huarache Trainers and has basically refused to wear all the fresh new player edition models Nike Basketball keeps making for him. Like this one.

This New York Knicks “Home” edition Nike Air Max Fly By features a clean white body with bright orange and blue contrasting that Amar’e just really could care less about. Adding STAT’s “AS1″ logo on the ankle straps isn’t going to budge him.

You may as well just stop and perhaps create some special makeup Zoom Huarache Trainers you can finagle your way into House of Hoops to sell, Nike.

to summarise what’s the point ?
1. air max fly is crap
2. player should decide which shoe to wear
3. nike is a nazi company who force players to wear their shoes by giving them huge money
4. nike should stop making basketball shoes
5. amare should go to a mental doctor to help him come down to earth
6. oh maybe this is the right one … he should work his ass off to get at least at the same level of mj to pretend something

The point is, that it’s a complete puzzle why there’s an endless stream of Air Max shoes being made for Amar’e, when everybody knows he doesn’t like Air Max.

It’s a nice colorway, but they really should make shoes Amar’e likes too, so give him some nice PE Zoom Huarache’s. 8)

It reminds me of the story Eric Avar told in the first Slam Kicks about Pippen. He had never met or talked to Pip, he just assumed bieng a bigger guy (6’9″) he would want Max Air, hence the Tempo and Big AIR shoes, then the Pippen 1. If anybody remembers, his custom Pip 1’s were made with Zoom for the playoffs. Nike is making these for two reasons: they are out of touch with Amare and what he wants (watch a game once in awhile), or 2: they are matching all those Amare jerseys sold in NYC, so just for a buck.
Just make the Trainers in Knicks colors available.
