Chuck keeps it real. Charles Barkley admitted that agents paid him at Auburn, his alma mater, but that hasn’t stopped him from expressing his love for the college program throughout the years. We’re not so sure how Chuck feels about his iconic Nike Air Max2 CB 94 getting a Duke Blue Devils colorway though. Coach K and Barkley’s paths crossed during their time spent on the 1992 Dream Team (Barkley as an imposing force in the post and Mike Krzyzewski as an assistant coach). Now the two meet up once again thanks to Nike dressing up the retro for one of their premier college basketball programs. A vibrant Game Royal upper is accented by a Black midsole as white branding contrasts on the heel. It’s a strange pairing but makes sense in retrospect. After all, Barkley did utter the infamous chant, “I am not a role model”. And given a long-standing vilification of Duke players throughout the college basketball-loving world, and a certain Sophomore’s affinity for tripping opponents, this combination starts to have a running theme. But don’t trip – pick up this pair at select retailers later this month.
