NIKE BASKETBALL 1990′s WEEK

Much ado was made about the original collection of Nike Footwear worn by members of the Team USA and theĀ  ‘Dream Tea’m, but one model in particular didn’t get as much shine as it truly deserves. As part of the legendary ’92 Dream Team in Barcelona, NBA Center David Robinson played an integral role on Defense, providing unprecedented athleticism at the Center position. During those games, Robinson wore the Nike Air Ballistic Force High – a super-high cut banger that utilized the mid-foot strap a-la the Air Force 180 and opted for snazzy color-blocking similar to a saddle shoe. Not all credit goes to The Admiral; John Stockton also wore the Air Ballistic Force during the ’92 Games as well. The Air Ballistic Force came in two heights – the strapped High (seen above), and a Mid version that featured a shorter ankle and no strap whatsoever. Relive this under-appreciated ’92 Dream Team icon below and stay tuned for more of Classics Revisited this week!
