Charles Barkley may not have a NBA Championship ring, but he does have one of the more rare appreciated medals in the world…a gold medal from the ’92 Olympics. This is a very special honor and a piece of history, as Barkley was part of the most dominate team that was ever assembled, the “Dream Team.” Their is no denying the impact that the ’92 Dream Team had as they outscored every team they played by 44pts. Adding to that, NBA TV will be airing a small documentary commemorating the accomplishments of the Dream Team in the months to come.
This Olympic colorway is just a small piece of the history that took place in ’92 which was the shoe the Barkley wore during that gold medal run. The Nike Air 180 ‘Olympic’ features a white leather synthetic upper along with navy hits throughout, red hits on the heel, and gold hits on the midsole. Check out the images below and look for the Nike Air 180 ‘Olympic’ to hit stores in July.
