With the Tokyo Olympics only a week away it's time to get excited for the summer games. Nike has released the sneakers that their athletes will be wearing at the games, from basketball players to runners. Here is what team U.S.A. will be sporting and some lace swaps to show your team spirit.
Nike's theme for the delayed 2020 games is “Rawdacious,” which features an energetic pink, orange, and crimson color colorway meant to show the excitement for these long awaited Olympics.
The Air Zoom Alphafly Next% is from their marathon series and was worn by Eliud Kipchoge when he became the first person to run a sub-two-hour marathon. Show love for team U.S.A. by swapping in Red Rope Laces that pick up the crimson accents.
For the U.S. basketball team Nike has the Basketball GT Run. This pair is just one of the three all-new basketball Nike has introduced this year. Pick up the design detail from the reimagined, linear black swoosh with a Black - Thin Oval lace swap.
Taking a break from the pink, orange and crimson colorway featured in the rest of the collection, the line also includes some black and yellow sneakers, the perfect street shoe for those who are hoping to win gold this summer. Swap out the gold laces for some Black Roshe-Style Laces.
