With the NBA season now behind us, our attention shifts to the 2012 Olympics in London, which Nike Sportswear will celebrate by re-releasing several USA Basketball classics. Arguably the centerpiece of the collection is the classic Air Force 180, worn by Charles Barkley to help the Dream Team capture gold in 1992. The shoe sports a white and navy upper, with metallic gold stitching, a gradient midsole and red on the tongue lining and counter.
The "Olympic" Air Force 180 has already started to hit retail overseas and will officially drop stateside on Sunday, July 1 for $130.
