Inspired by Vince Carter‘s memorable dunk over 7’2 French National Team center Frederic Weis in the 2000 Olympics these Nike shoes take on a familiar Team USA-style navy, red, and white colorway, but bring it into the modern day with bold silver accents on both the heel piece and the midsole.
The upper is constructed mostly of a textured navy knit material that contrasts perfectly with the aforementioned silver, while a giant red Swoosh wraps around the heel for branding. An “L.O.B.” (short for “Library Of Bounce”) embellishment that we’ve seen on other AlphaDunk makeups appears on the left shoe’s medial heel, while the right medial heel boasts a USA Basketball badge.
Even more special logos run up and down the throat and tongue’s pull tabs. Down below, the two-tone midsole provides visible Zoom Air cushioning that runs from toe to midfoot, and an icy translucent blue outsole finalizes the stylings.
