Today is Chris Mullin's 49th birthday and since it falls during the Summer Olympics, we take a look at his Dream Team footwear. As a member of the greatest basketball team ever assembled, Chris Mullin wore the Nike Air Flight Lite II. The Flight Lite II from 1992 was the follow up to the Flight Lite, the lightest Nike Basketball shoe ever at its time. The second Flight Lite saw time on the feet of various NBA players, but got an international audience on the feet of Chris Mullin and Scottie Pippen at the Barcelona games in a special Olympic colorway. Similar to the Olympic Air Jordan VII, it came in a white base with silver, navy and red accents.
Take a look below at a few shots of Dream Teamer and Basketball Hall of Famer Chris Mullin in the Nike Air Flight Lite II. Would you like to see these return in a future Nike Basketball Olympics retro pack?
