For years, Amar’e Stoudemire has been one of the biggest names to represent Nike Basketball. Hitting the court in a variety of notable Nike Basketball shoes throughout his career, Amar’e is finally treated to his own signature style known as the Air Max Sweep Thru. Recently arriving at Eastbay in several impressive colorways, the Nike Air Max Sweep Thru is now also up for grabs in Amar’e’s very own New York Knicks road colorway.
A premium black suede builds most of their upper, while a team orange and royal camo-print covers the Air Max Sweep Thru’s unique cross-strap system. Team orange also handles the Swoosh and tongue branding, while the unique camo-print makes one last appearance along the liner. A white outsole sits below, working together with a royal outsole and heel Air bag.
The Amar’e Stoudemire Knicks’ road colorway of the Nike Air Max Sweep Thru is now available for purchase from Eastbay.

This past summer, New York Knicks forward Amar’e Stoudemire signed a new multi-year deal with Nike, continuing a relationship that has been in place since he entered the league in 2002. As a result of that new contract, Nike made Amar’e the face of one of their newest basketball performance silhouettes, the Air Max Sweep Thru. These new Nike basketball shoes offer a premium lockdown fit with a midfoot support cross-strap system. Other performance features include an injected Phylon midsole, Stoudemire’s preferred Max Air cushioning in the heel and a solid rubber outsole with traditional herringbone traction.
Available at Eastbay now is a special Knicks-inspired Amar’e Stoudemire PE colorway of the Air Max Sweep Thru created for him to wear in New York’s home games. The shoe sports a white leather base with an orange and royal blue camouflage print on the cross-straps and inner lining. Blue also works the Swoosh logos and midsole, while additional hits of orange are seen on the Max Air unit and outsole. Additional personalization comes in the form of Stoudemire’s “A1S” logo on the tongue. Knicks fans can pick up a pair of the new Amar’e shoes at Eastbay today.
