Nike Air Max2 CB White/Black/Old-Royal – For about three years in the early nineties, Michael Jordan played second fiddle to Charles Barkely. Was it because of Jordan’s short hiatus? Maybe, but it probably had to do with Sir Charles having the illest kicks in the league. The Air Max2 from 1994 is one of those times where the Air Max was superior to the clean lines of the Air Jordan IX. It’s good to see that Nike isn’t trying to re-design a classic with updated technology, and that they have stuck to a tried-and-true original colorway. Look for the white, black, and old royal colorway to drop early next month on June 5.
