In the sneaker world, Nike has been giving major props to Charles Barkley and his iconic sneaker moments. Since 2021, they’ve been revisiting Barkley’s signature shoe history, starting with his legendary Air Max creation from 1994. And now, for their latest drop, Nike is bringing back Barkley’s original Air Max CB 94 in its “Varsity Purple” colorway sometime in 2024.
Last seen in 2021, this straight-jacket-inspired silhouette is returning to its roots with a full-grain leather construction, but with a fresh twist to celebrate its 40th anniversary. The shoe rocks a clean tumbled leather upper, while the tongue, elastic straps, inner lining, and mesh punch-hole pockets stand out in sleek jet-black. But the real star of the show is the vibrant “Varsity Purple” outsole, giving the shoe that Godzilla-level pop.
The highly anticipated Nike Air Max CB 94 “White/Varsity Purple” is set to hit shelves in 2024, with a retail price of $170. While we patiently wait, you can feast your eyes on detailed images of this retro gem.
And for those craving more retro goodness, the “Royal Reimagined” 1s will be dropping on November 4th.
Now, let’s talk about where to cop these kicks!
