Nike Air Max CB34: Bringing Sir Charles Back

September 23, 2011 | Nicholas Welch

Must See Entertainment and Style Videos

The Nike Air Max CB34 is one of the most fly throwback basketball shoes on the market today. Available in several different colorways, these signature Charles Barkley kicks will give you the style you need both on and off the court.

A retro sneaker, the Nike Air Max CB34 may be slightly heavier than what today's athletes have come to expect from Nike. Other players may take issue with the lace pattern, which prevents the shoe from being tied as tightly as more recent models. But such concerns haven't stopped NBA players from adopting the shoe. In fact, Washington Wizards guard Gilbert Arenas pulled them out of his closet and rocked them in a game against the Oklahoma Thunder last season.

Before dismissing the CB34 as too heavy or too loose, try them on. Any misgivings you may have had will likely disappear as you feel the comfort of the shoe. The CB34 makes use of Nike's Max Air technology with larger airbags for cushioning.

The Nike Air Max CB34 has enough style to shine both on the court and in the streets. Check out these kicks on Eastbay.com and bring the Round Mound of Rebound back into the game.
