For all you Houston Rockets fans out there that double as sneakerheads, there’s been some exciting things popping off on the shoe front. According to Sneaker News, Nike is re-releasing the Charles Barkley Air Force CBs, which were originally out 1993, in a brand-new Rockets colorway.

According to Sneaker News:

Charles Barkley’ Nike Air Force Max CB may have originally released in 1993 when he was a member of the Phoenix Suns, but now it’s surfaced in a brand-new red and navy makeup inspired by the colorways of his second team: the Houston Rockets. Offering a layered red leather-and-nubuck base, these ’90s classics then add contrast via a navy midfoot Swoosh and navy buckle on the criss-crossing lockdown system straps. However, their most noticeable detail arrives on the heel, which features white pinstripes on its navy base and the Round Mound Of Rebound’s #4 on the tabs for an obvious nod to the classic jerseys the franchise sported in the late ’90s-early ’00s. Down below, a red, navy, and white midsole offers further contrast, while the black outsole features a bold Nike logo and a red piece towards the forefoot, complete with a circular traction pattern that sharp-eyed sneaker lovers may recognize from the Air Jordan 7.

These babies retail for $150 and are available through Nike’s website.
