While the Nike Air Force 1 High didn’t participate in the 1992 Olympics and the Dream Team’s Gold Medal, the shoe is deserving of credit for paving the way for some of the designs seen on the court for that game. Shoes like the Nike Air Force 180 share some design and engineering cues set for by the Air Force 1, so it deserves an honorary captaincy for the upcoming Nike Sportswear ‘Dream Team’ Collection that we previewed earlier. The Nike Air Force 1 High ‘Dream Team’ features a patriotic theme captured by the simple Red/White/Blue colorway, accentuated by the metallic gold swoosh and the sick 1992 USA Basketball logo on the tongue label. The translucent outsole acts as a window for a special ‘1992 Barcelona’ graphic for a direct homage to that historic ’92 team. We’ve got a detailed look at the Air Force 1 High ‘Dream Team’ after the jump so take a look and stick with Sneaker News for more info and updates.

At least they used good leather for once. I was beginning to think it no longer existed at Nike and Jordan.
