Godzilla Inspires Nike Air Max CB '94 Sneakers

posted on by Bamboo Dong

Anime News Network's merchandise coverage sponsored by Tokyo Otaku Mode.

The Nike Air Max CB '94, NBA legend Charles Barkley's signature shoe, is getting a sweet new color palette, inspired by the one and only Godzilla. The shoes feature reflective green lizard skin side panels, yellow/orange gradient leather, black nubuck mudguards, and soles reminiscent of the monster's teeth.

It's not the first time Charles Barkley's met Godzilla, though. 90s kids just might remember this classic Nike spot, appropriately titled "Godzilla vs. Charles Barkley."

Sadly, the Godzilla color palette only comes in children's sizes, with no current news on a North American release, but here's hoping the kid in all of us will soon be able to nab our own pair.
