Few sequels are as good as the original, but even the ones that don’t surpass usually bring some flair or innovation that make them loveable just the same. Such is the 1996 USA Olympic Basketball Team. Known to some as the Dream II (or the Dream Team III, depending on how you regard the 1994 FIBA squad), the mix of veterans and up-and-comers lack the classic appeal of the ’92 squad, but are still special in their own right. We take a look back at the sneaker highlights of Penny Hardaway, Scottie Pippen, Grant Hill, and more in this Olympic edition of Roster Rewind.

Nike Air More Uptempo

Worn By: Scottie Pippen & Charles Barkley

Pippen gets the props for the More Uptempos, but Sir Charles also kept them in his rotund rotation. Barkley donned both “Olympic” and icy white makeups of the statement product, as well as navy accented editions of his Air CB34 II and Air CB4 signatures.
