We all assumed the Nike Air Max CB 94 had run its course after a solid run through early 2021, with several months having passed since its previous launch.
But now, seemingly off the scene, a new colorway dubbed the Nike Air Max CB 94 “Suns” has surfaced, seemingly a homage to the previous Air Max CB 34 release.
The next edition Nike Air Max 2 CB 94 Suns is set to arrive in the sneaker world on Friday, June 3, 2022 at 7:30 p.m. GMT+5:30 p.m. These animated silhouettes will drop with a price tag of $160. Pick them up through Nike’s e-commerce website and other select retailers.
Nike Air Max 2 CB 94 Suns is a nod to the previous similar design
Charles Barkley’s Nike Air Max CB 94, first released in 1994, will be re-released in a mesmerizing “Suns” color block.
The product description on the official Nike website states:
“The Nike Air Max2 CB ’94, one of legendary shoe designer Tinker Hatfield’s most iconic creations, returns with more force than ever. This high-end hardwood classic speaks for itself, combining attitude and fierce play and featuring the same smashing backboard style and redefined comfort of the 90s.”
The sneakers will come in an authentic palette of white, varsity purple, black, and total orange. It will feature a tumbled white leather construction with a black toggle cord mechanism and black dots along the side panels.
The uppers also have perforations on the toes and are adjacent to the lacing system for added breathability. A Nike render to the sides adds purple accents, while Charles Barkley’s iconic number “34” marks the medial sides of the kicks.
A Black footbed on the bottom is adorned with Purple and Orange detailing to bring out the dessert look, while the familiar Air Max tongue labeling is incorporated with hits of Pheonix Suns colors. Eventually, semi-translucent midsoles match the rest.
You can spruce up your footwear collection with these new designs which will be delivered through Nike’s online store, alongside other select sellers including Finish Line, JD Sports and DTLR. Resellers like StockX, GOAT and eBay are also expected to carry the Suns colorway.
