Celebrating the Christmas holiday, Amar’e Stoudemire recently hit the court for the New York Knicks in this all new Air Max Sweep Thru to kick-off another NBA season. Definitely in the Christmas spirit, the Nike Air Max Sweep Thru is hit with a traditional green, red and white color scheme.
Lucky green handles most of the leather upper on these, while university red and white combine on the forefoot strap and Amar’e’s personal logo on the tongue. University red is also seen handling the Swoosh, while white makes one last appearance on the midsole and outsell down below.

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.
