Initially previewed in mid-March and slated for a Summer 2010 release, the 1992 Dream Team super-hybrid Nike Air Zoom Barcelona has yet to hit US retailers this summer. The Barcelona is a tribute to the Dream Team’s dominating Gold Medal performance, creating a new hybrid tribute model using elements of three of the Nike models worn by the team, namely the Air Jordan VII (7) Olympic, Barkley’s Air Force 180, and the Air Ballistic Force. The three shoes were fused to create the Air Zoom Barcelona, featuring the jagged midsole, visible Zoom on a 180-Air housing, the trademark in-step strap, and a starry insole. Reader response to the shoe was positive, but with the summer release season gone and the 1992 Dream Team anniversary now in the rear view as well, it’s starting to look like the Zoom Barcelona may go unreleased, at least in the States. You can check out some more pics after the jump, and on the bright side, you might be able to get your hands on this lone size 9 sample pair from cigar0330 on eBay.
