Nike Air Zoom Barcelona - Dream Team
New Nike model pays tribute to the 1992 Olympic Dream Team.
words_Brandon Richard After we crown a new (or repeat) NBA champion this month, the next time we'll see some of the league's best players compete is when Team USA takes the court this summer at the 2010 FIBA World Championship in Turkey. Also this summer, the Naismith Memorial Basketball Hall of Fame will induct its 2010 class. Included in the group that will be enshrined is the 1992 Olympic Men's Basketball "Dream Team." This collection of individuals needs no introduction. Simply put - they are the greatest basketball team ever assembled. The combination of their overwhelming talent and undeveloped international competition lead to a 43.8 average margin of victory and perhaps the most dominant Olympic Gold Medal performance in the history of the games. To celebrate that incredible group of players and Christian Laettner, Nike will introduce the Air Zoom Barcelona. Those who can recall the footwear that hit the courts in Spain should be able to note the inspiration for the design ques. Elements of the Air Force 180, Air Jordan VII, and Air Ballistic Force were taken to create this new hybrid model. Giving this shoe a bit of a modern touch is the incorporation of Zoom Air cushioning. No solid news on a release date yet, but Sole Collector will keep you posted. via Kenlu
