The upcoming Nike Sportswear ‘Dream Team’ Collection is certainly the most fitting name for this set of sneaker releases, isn’t it? Aside from the direct reference to the 1992 Dream Team that took home the Gold medal in domination fashion, these four releases offer up the opportunity to cop some sneakers that we haven’t seen in a long while. The Nike Air Force 180 ‘Olympic’ returns once again, as does the Nike Air More Uptempo, that dropped in 2010 as a House of Hoops exclusive. Joining the two 90′s models is the Nike Shox BB4, made famous by Vince Carter’s complete demoralization of Frederic Weis and entire French National Team, and the Nike Zoom Huarache 2K4, that debuted during the ’04 Olympic year. We’ve got another look at the upcoming Nike Sportswear ‘Dream Team’ Collection after the jump so take a look and stick with Sneaker News for more release information as it develops.

Nike Sportswear ‘Dream Team’ Collection

February 21st, 2012 by | 31 comments

nike sportswear dream team collection Nike Sportswear Dream Team Collection

Team USA will lace up this August to defend their 2008 Gold Medal during the Summer Olympic Games in London, and if they keep the historic 1992 Dream Team in focus, they’ll have no difficulty in returning the prized Gold to U.S. soil. While the 1992 squad is best recognized as the ‘Dream Team’, there’s no doubt that the United States sends the most talented bunch of basketball players every four years, and the upcoming 2012 team has the high expectations of reaching or surpassing the record-setting success of the ’92 team that boasted names likes Michael Jordan, Magic Johnson, and Larry Bird.

To celebrate the ‘dream’ heritage of USAB, Nike Sportswear unveils the Nike Sporstwear ‘Dream Team’ Collection, which features five of the most memorable Nike Basketball selections of the past games and a special edition Nike Destroyer Jacket that pays tribute to the 20th Anniversary of the original Dream Team. Included in this pack (previously featured on Sneaker News) is the Nike Air Force 180 (Charles Barkley), Nike Air More Uptempo (Scottie Pippen), the Nike Shox BB4 (Vince Carter), and the Nike Zoom Huarache 2k4 as well as a Nike Air Force 1 High.

Complex’s Greatest Charles Barkley Sneaker Moments

2002 cool grey xi Complexs Greatest Charles Barkley Sneaker Moments

During his time in the NBA, Sir Charles was a man who demanded attention both and off the court. His forceful style and in-your-face personality made him a superstar, a wave he’s still riding today with his various commentating gigs. Of course also essential to his style was the sneakers, as he locked down a few signatures for himself as one of Nike Basketball’s frontrunners in the 90′s, repping the Swoosh to no end as in the Reebok jacket controversy of the 1992 Barcelona Olympics. Complex has compiled a gallery of Charles Barkley sneaker shots for your view pleasure, a timeline that starts out with him rocking Converse basketball models before he made the transition to Nike’s Force series and his own signature sneaks like the Nike Air Max CB 34 later on. The tail end of the selection even includes some middle-era Jordan Brand heat, with the Mound Round of Rebound rocking the Air Jordan XIV and the ‘Cool Grey’ Jordan XI. Get a sample of the heat after the jump and hit up Complex for the full feature.

nike retro basketball volt pack Nike Retro Basketball Volt Pack

This past Tuesday was the biggest one for the Nike Air Zoom Huarache 2K4 during the entire time Sneaker News has been online.  This modern classic showed up first as part of the Nike USAB Pack celebrating previous summer Olympic Games and then again alongside a highlighter-like pair covered in Volt.  Turns out that second pair was a sign of things to come, as now we see that each of the four models from the USAB set have been reproduced in black and Volt for another upcoming pack for Q3 2012.  Along with the Huarache 2K4s, expect the Nike Air Force 180, Air More Uptempo and Shox BB4, fittingly done primarily in black, leaving the Huaraches as the sole all-Volt design (2004 being the only Olympics of these four that didn’t result in US gold).  Click through to view each pair, and let us know how these compare to the USAB joints, as well as which single design is the best among them.

Nike USAB Pack – Fall 2012

December 6th, 2011 by | 33 comments

nike usab fall 2012 summary1 Nike USAB Pack   Fall 2012

While basketball fans were suffering with the spectre of an NBA season lost to another lockout, we all kept our collective heads up with the knowledge that we’d at least have the 2012 London Olympic Games. Nike is perhaps more aware of this fact than anyone other than maybe Coca-Cola, so you can expect a variety of Olympic-oriented sneakers and gear, probably in just a few short months. The earliest indication of such a release comes at least in part from Nike Sportswear, and perhaps entirely, though the recent release of one of these models on NIKEiD suggests it might still fall under the Nike Basketball umbrella. That’s where each of these classic basketball shoes from the upcoming ‘USAB Pack’ originated, this pack containing three gold medal winners and the aforementioned Nike Zoom Huarache 2k4 that’s considered a gold standard in b-ball kicks to this day.

Joining the Huarache 2k4s in this white, navy, red and gold-colored quartet is the Nike Air Force 180we’ve only seen in hybrid form since the last retros in early 2008. Joining that Charles Barkley look from the 1992 Dream Team comes Scottie Pippen’s Air More Uptempo from the ’96 Atlanta Games, along with Vince Carter’s Shox BB4 from the millenial event in Athens. It could be harder to find a sneakerhead without warm and fuzzy feelings for at least one of these shoes, than to find someone who’s indifferent to the four-pack, so click through to see each of these models in their OG form and stick with Sneaker News so we can let you know each pair’s release date.
