Check Out The Nike+ Hyperdunk 2012 “Olympics” Sneakers LeBron James Wore During Team USA’s Game Last Night
Kobe Bryant tried to compare the 2012 Olympic basketball team to the 1992 Dream Team a couple weeks ago. But, after watching last night’s exhibition game against Argentina—which Team USA won 86-80—it’s clear that their path to a gold medal is not going be as easy as the one that the Dream Team took back in ’92. Last night’s game was, well, not pretty. Not pretty at all, in fact. And, Team USA is going to need to do better than that if they plan on bringing home the gold next month.
What was pretty during last night’s game, though, was the sneakers that LeBron James wore. But, he wasn’t rocking a pair of Nike LeBron 9s. No, Bron-Bron was outfitted in the Nike+ Hyperdunk 2012 “Olympics,” which dropped last month and will be on LeBron’s feet for most of the 2012 Summer Olympics in London. As you can see from this photo that he posted to his Instagram page, LeBron paired his Nike+ Hyperdunks with the throwback jerseys that the Olympic team wore last night to pay homage to the Dream Team. And, they matched up quite well.
If you’re in the market for a pair of basketball sneakers to help represent the U.S. team as they enter the Olympics, these have to be your #1 choice. Unfortunately, they’re going to cost you a pretty penny—this pair will run you $250—but they’re equipped with the Nike+ technology that’ll allow you to track your every move on the court on your smart phone. From your speed to your vertical jump, these were built to help you improve your game. They’re also one of Nike’s best basketball sneakers at the moment. So, even if you don’t use them for their technology, you’ll be getting one of the best basketball sneakers available right now. You probably won’t get confused for LeBron. But, you will get one hell of a basketball sneaker to help you cheer on Team USA.
