1990’s basketball sneaker nerds have much to be delighted about this summer, as at least three of Nike’s best Olympics colorways of the ’92 and ’96 summer games are making a comeback. Charles Barkley’s Dream Team version of the Air Force 180? Check. Scottie Pippen’s even bolder Olympic colorway of the Air More Uptempo? You bet. And completing the trifecta of memorable Olympic retros (that we know about so far, anyway) is a reproduction of Penny Hardaway’s PE version the Zoom Flight ’96. Switching from his Air Penny 1 to the Zoom Flight for the 1996 summer games, Penny helped Team USA secure another gold medal in this white and navy version similar to the general release colorway, just with Penny’s Olympic #6 stitched in gold on each heel. Get your best look yet at the shoe in case you need convincing to pick up a pair, and find them at select Nike Sportswear retailers like Solefly beginning July 7, 2016.
Update: The Nike Zoom Flight 96 “Olympic” releases on July 20th, 2016 for $130.
