Nike Honors 1996 Women’s Basketball Team With Special Hyperdunk 2016 Release
The men’s team gets all the glory, but the women’s USA Basketball team has actually been one of the most dominant Olympics teams—in any sport—for year’s now. How dominant? They haven’t lost a single game in the Olympic tournaments since before the 1996 team was assembled. That 1996 team was perhaps the most legendary of them all, and the equivalent of the 1992 men’s Dream Team when it come’s to women’s hoops. The squad with women’s basketball royalty like Sheryl Swoopes, Dawn Staley, Lisa Lesley, and Rebecca Lobo is honored by Nike Basketball twenty years later with a special edition of the Hyperdunk 2016 Low, featuring a patriotic red, white, and blue colorway with a stylized flag tie-dye graphic. Celebrate the dominance of women’s basketball in the USA with your own pair, available August 20th at select Nike retailers and the Nike SNKRS app.
