Yes, you read that headline correctly.
In midst of a career renaissance in China, Stephon Marbury is bringing back his signature sneaker, and that is exciting.
Marbury has been rolling out teasers of designs and some promotional appearances he's done on Instagram, and safe to say, the Starbury is indeed back.
Marbury tried rebooting the line in 2013 but was unsuccessful. But after taking home three CBA titles in the past four seasons, winning Finals MVP in 2015, the Beijing Ducks star may just have his weight up enough to pull this off. We hope.
The whole idea behind these sneakers was to make a quality product but sell them at an extremely affordable price – originally clocking in at $14.98. It's kind of like what Kanye West tried to do with his Adidas line in terms of the whole mass accessibility thing, except Stephon Marbury actually pulled that off.
So though it's unclear when or where you can get all this new heat, it appears there will be plenty of colorways to go around, or as Marbury captions them, #StarburyFlavors.
