Nike Sportswear continues its strong relationship with Loopwheeler to release two of its most iconic products in the LIVESTRONG colorways – the Loopwheeler AW77 Hoody and the Loopwheeler Tee. The shared obsession of supreme quality and meticulous craftsmanship brought these brands together in the Fall of 2008 to create the most premium and iconic fleece products. Practically handmade, the Nike Sportswear products created with Loopwheeler fleece fabric are extremely limited in quantity with an unsurpassed quality. The numbers placed on the sleeve are significant to Lance and the cancer story:

28,000,000: Number of cancer survivors alive today.
