Twenty-four years ago — six full Olympiads! — Dream Team I, the greatest basketball team ever assembled, took the 1992 Barcelona Olympics by storm. The Dream Team was led by Michael Jordan, of course, who wore the iconic Air Jordan 7 Olympic en route to gold. This weekend, Jordan Brand revisits the shoe, but in an altogether different way.
Tomorrow, the Air Jordan 7 Tinker Alternate brings to life a colorway that was one of designer Tinker Hatfield’s original alternate concepts back in ’92. Blue and white commingle on the leather upper, with gold and red accents rounding out that ‘Murica (medal) touch. The colors and inspiration are there, just like that 24-year-old icon, but like we’ve never quite seen them before.
The Air Jordan 7 Tinker Alternate releases Saturday, August 6, at retailers nationwide, including online accounts at 10am EDT/7am PDT. Here’s the FinishLine.com purchase link.
