It's been nearly 20 years since the 1992 U.S. Men's Olympic basketball team - dubbed "The Dream Team" - took both the court and the world by storm at the 1992 Summer Olympics in Barcelona, destroying their competition by an average of 44 points. To celebrate their anniversary, Nike Sportswear is rolling-out a four part sneaker release that pays homage to the team that included Patrick Ewing, Larry Bird, Scottie Pippen, Michael Jordan, Karl Malone, John Stockton, Charles Barkley, and Magic Johnson. The first piece, the Nike Air Force 180, was built for Charles Barkley's aggressive game and is back in the kick's patriotic color scheme. Nike's Air More Uptempo High-top follows in a matching colorway, as seen on the feet of Scottie Pippen during the the 1996 Olympic Games, with the dominating Air logo riding down the paneling. Sneaker and NBA fans can experience this taste of nostalgia when these drop in July - the impatient among you can hit the UK's endclothing to pre-order yours now beginning today. via: SN
