Charles Barkley is probably one of the most polarizing figures in the game of basketball; you can catch him these days on Thursday nights analyzing NBA games on TNT alongside Shaquille O’neal, Ernie Johnson and Kenny Smith. Barkley was a phenomenal rebounding machine, and one of the only power forwards who could handle the ball like a guard. I was very fond of his signature shoes, the Nike Air Max CB 34 Godzilla; I remember walking into the Hagerstown Nike outlet in 2010 and finding the phoenix suns CB34 sitting on the sales rack for $59- talking about a steal, I was so excited and I’m mad at myself for only picking up one pair.
Well, the Nike Air Max CB 34 Godzilla is back again; this particular colorway comes in a black, white and purple color scheme. The shoe features a mixture of durable leather and nubuck on the upper part; mesh will hit the extension of the tongue and the inner liner as well. One of my favorite part of the shoes is the “Charles Barkley” silhouette on the outside of the tongue, a depiction of the well known triple threat stance in basketball.
The classic Nike Air logo on the heel will complete the look; also featured on the CB34, is the visible air pocket in the heel area. There is no official release date on these yet, but Oneness had some pairs in stock that sold out instantly. However, you can still find them on eBay, see listings below and stay tuned for further updates.
