To commemorate the 20th anniversary of the Dream Team and the ongoing success of USA Olympic Basketball, Nice Kicks will kick off its latest, 2-week series titled Olympic Diaries. Beginning July 30th, the day after USA’s first game, we’ll unleash sneaker-themed discussions from one player on each and every USA Olympic Basketball team (1992-2012). Every two days, the yet-to-be-named players will discuss the kicks worn in their respective Olympic moments (by themselves and others) and their current influence and future ventures in the sneaker culture. Some will be in story format, while others will be released in the form of interviews and autobiographical pieces. Check back on Monday for the first installment.
Throughout the Olympic Diaries series, follow author George Kiel III on Twitter at @geokthree for updates.
