UPDATE: The Nike Air CB 34 Retro is well and truly out and back on the streets. Charles Barkley’s burly basketball beast looks as good now as it did back when he was getting heated on court. Peep the updated images above and then start something at stockists like Oneness.
Nothing says 90s like an over-the-top spelled out motif. Think about it, the Nike Air More Uptempo and Air CB 34 with the big graffiti style ‘SIR CHARLES’ on the outsole both look like something from the background of a Whoopi Goldberg film. Okay, that’s a pretty small sample group – but we don’t think it’s too much of a stretch to call it a theme. Look at this ‘Black/White/Varsity Purple’ colourway, aka ‘Godzilla’, and you’ll see what we mean. It’s a quintessentially 90s style mid-cut basketball silhouette with the big Velcro strap, wavy midsole and air cushioned heel. They’re good enough for a king, or at least a ‘Sir’.
You can pick up the Nike Air CB 34 ‘Black/White/Varsity Purple’ now from select stockists, including Oneness.
