Finding a pair of original Olympic Air Jordan VIIs is hard enough, with their red, white, blue, and gold color scheme and telltale “9” on the back. Finding a pair that was actual worn by His Airness? Nearly impossible, yet that’s exactly what Michael Jordan’s Dream Team Sneakers are. Sourced by another member of the Dream Team who wished to remain anonymous, these shoes saw a lot of action during the 1992 games in Barcelona, and have the abrasions to prove it. At the time, the shoes were made specifically for Jordan to wear during the games, and while Nike has since reissued the style, none of those had the privilege of launching through the air on the feet of the GOAT as he and his teammates ran roughshod over the rest of the world.
