Did Charles Barkley Know How Much His Nike Sneakers Cost During A Recent Appearance On The Price Is Right?
Charles Barkley gave us a lot of great things during his storied NBA career. He gave us great performances on the court. He gave us great commercials. And, maybe most importantly, he gave us great sneakers. Through his sneaker endorsement deal with Nike, Barkley released a diesel lineup of sneakers and we ate them up. Even today, CB34′s sneaker reign supreme with people paying hundreds of dollars to get their hands on a pair. So, you’d assume that Barkley would know how much his sneakers cost today, right? Er, right?!
Recently, The Price Is Right held a special Celebrity Charity Week, where different celebs appeared on the show and won money for the charities of their choice. One of those celebrities was Barkley, who played one game that featured Drew Carey asking him the prices of some Barkley-related memorabilia. And, one of the items mentioned was a pair of his Air Max Barkleys. Barkley was asked to come within $25 of the retail price of the sneakers without going over the total price. And, while he was able to do that, he didn’t land exactly on the nose with the price, which was a little bit strange to us. If you’re him, how do you not know how much your own sneakers cost?
Oh well. The bottom line is that Barkley won some money for his charity. But, as you’ll see, he wasn’t all that great at The Price Is Right and, clearly, he needs to give Nike a ring sometime soon so that he knows how much his current sneakers are selling for in stores. Are you surprised that Barkley was unable to give the exact price of his sneakers on The Price Is Right—or do you think that he just doesn’t have enough time these days to keep up with everything that’s going on in his life? Watch the video below and then let us know.
