After four years of amazing play, Amare Stoudemire has finally receieved his own signature Nike sneaker, the Nike Air Force STAT. The design of the Nike Air Force STAT, Amare’s nickname which stands for Stand Tall and Talented, is a throwback to the early days of the Charles Barkley line of Force Max kix that incorporates decades of technological advancement. The STATs feature a pearlized leather seamless upper, a dual strapping system (instep and forefoot), full length Max Air, and a quilted lining. To add Amare’s character to the STAT, Amare and Nike included several personal characteristics onto the STAT including an embossed 610.245 (Amare’s Height/Weight) inscription above the Max Unit and the an embroidered “Still I Rise” on the inner tongue.
Also, a little known Nike fact, the STATS feature 5 metal dots on the heel of the sneaker. These five Dots symbolize Nike’s achievement in designing/creating a sneaker to perfect specifications on the first try. The 5 Dots are also present on the Nike Air Max 360.
The Nike Air Force STATs are available now at a retail price of $130
