Candy-coated colorways may be all the rage on the performance and retro basketball market, but too much sugar in your sneaker diet is a bad thing. Going against the grain, many memorable hoop shoes have taken on the Timberland aesthetic in the form of “Wheat” colorways and other similar shades straight out of the spice cabinet. Sometimes hearty, sometimes horrific, the boot blend on basketball builds has proven a familiar but still rare rendition that has gained acclaim over the years. As the Nike Air Foamposite One “Wheat” drops this weekend, we countdown our 12 favorite hoop kicks to take on the Timberland tone.
12. Nike Air Total Foamposite Max “Wheat”
Let’s not lie, these heavy sneakers weren’t exactly flying off the shelves when they first launched, especially in this “Wheat” makeup. Nevertheless, this lifestyle colorway of the Nike Total Air Foamposite Max has certainly become better with time. The shoe’s bulky build, easy to clean Foamposite upper and full-length Total Max cushioning make these tough enough to brave the cold but hot enough to heat up the summer.
