The sneaker that Michael Jordan wore during his gold medal win at the 1984 Summer Olympic Games was the Converse Fastbreak Mid.
Much like other basketball shoes in the 80s, the Fastbreak Mid features an all leather upper with a vulcanized sole.
MJ and other Olympians like Chris Mullin during these games wore Converse as they were the official sponsor of the USA basketball team in 1984. Michael would sign with Nike a little more than two months after the Summer Games.
