The Nike Air Max2 CB ‘94 “White/Varsity Purple” is an original colorway of Charles Barkley’s former signature shoe with Nike that debuted in 1994. The “White/Varsity Purple” was “Sir Charles’” “home” colorway of the Air Max2 CB ‘94—he wore a predominantly black version of the shoe when not playing in Phoenix during the ‘93-94 NBA season. Quintessentially retro, the “White/Varsity Purple” is a Tinker Hatfield designed shoe inspired by the look of a straightjacket. The white leather overlays along the eyelets and midsole mimics the look of the confined garment. Black “Nike” embroidery is stitched onto the midfoot harness that supports the lacing system and black accenting is located on the nylon tongue. A classic black “Nike Air” logo is located on the heel and a mini Swoosh on the back of the midsole. Like the original Air Max2 CB ‘94, this retro version of the shoe features a visible Air unit in the heel.
