With the 2014 Sochi Winter Olympics fast approaching, Nike decided to give Team USA their own special gift. With full holiday spirit, Nike unveiled the uniforms Team USA will wear on the medal stand.
The most noticeable part of the uniform is the Nike Aeroloft 800 Summit Jacket. This silver jacket proudly displays the red to blue fading USA on the back. What’s special about these uniforms are the hidden gifts throughout it, for example, the “Land of the Free” and “Home of the Brave” embroidered in the hand pockets. Finally, blue zippers accent the jacket and the USA Olympic logo is on the front.
The Nike Flyknit Trainer Chukka FSB will be the footwear of champions, with Nike’s special winter version for these winter athletes. These shoes are black, with white highlights, USA, and Nike swoosh, and finished off with lime green soles. In keeping with the holiday spirit, these Chukkas also have some hidden gifts. The right insole is blue with stars and says “Land of the Free,” while the left insole is red and white striped and says “Home of the Brave.”
These beautiful uniforms aren’t just for the medal-winning athletes, but also for those who support them. So if have some extra cash from your holiday gifts, buy your own Nike Team USA Uniform, and represent your national pride.
