Sir Charles has been getting a lot of heat lately for voicing his opinion but with signature shoes like the Nike Air Max CB 34, it seems like Chuck is equally responsible for dishing out the heat as well. The original Phoenix Suns inspired colorway of the CB 34 was the feature of one of our recent Eastbay Memory Lane posts that revisited some of Barkley’s accomplishments on the court throughout the nineties but the return of this classic really doesn’t need much explaining.

The Nike Air Max CB 34 in this combination of White, Varsity Purple, and Orange Blaze is what Barkley wore in his Phoenix Suns days. The fact that Charles came the closest to an NBA Title in Phoenix, and also wore the Air Max CB 34 as a member of the Dream Team in the Olympics, makes it a must have for many collectors and especially fans of “the round mound of rebound.”
