Fed up of running shoes? Don’t worry Nike are dropping a pair of OG basketball shoes to change the sneaker market. The Nike Air Max2 CB 94 Black Purple are returning for another retro.
You might not be aware of this drop, seeing as the recent trend of running shoes are dominating the market. But, Nike has dropped some OG colourways of one of best (none Jordan) basketball silhouettes. Earlier this year we saw the return of the Nike Air Max 2 CB 94 original white and purple colourway and now the “Road” colourway is making its return, marking the sneakers 4th retro release since it debuted in 1994.
Returning this time in its OG form and also in Junior sizes so the whole family can cop. These Charles Barkley icons are a must have for those of us that are still looking for basketball shoes to add to our collection.
The Nike Air Max2 CB 94 Black Purple
Debatable, this pair sits on an all white upper, with predominantly black accents on the overlays and purple edging the sides. The purple carries on to decorate the shoes tongue and teeth as well as the chunky Air Max unit. The combination of colours and materials make this trainer an iconic colourway and an exciting release for the Barkley fans – however, due to their OG stature, these are going to be hard to get your hands on so make sure you are checking the Nike online stores as they are only dropping to a select few.

The “Road” Edition
Designed by Tinker Hatfield, the Nike Air Max II CB ’94 was also the signature shoe of NBA star, Sir Charles Barkley. The iconic Nike Air Max2 CB 94 was originally worn by Charles Barkley. Designed to compliment Barkley’s physical play on the hardwood, they feature a leather upper, straight jacket-inspired lace placket for lockdown fit, visible Max Air unit in the heel, rope laces, heel pull tab, and rubber outsole.
