Over the past few generations, Nike has draped the world’s best athletes in cutting-edge apparel that is as functional as it is eye-catching. The relationship between Nike and the American Olympic team is a special one, given the Oregon-based company’s roots as well as the country’s prestigious legacy in the world games. Moving into the 2014 Winter Olympics in Sochi, Russia then, Nike ensured that it would create a capsule to not only match, but accentuate the country’s confidence in victory.
Team USA will sport the comfortable and warm Aeroloft 800 Summit Jacket, which features UV-reflecting titanium nano-coating at the exterior and is loaded with 800-fill goose down inside. The premium materials are matched with tech details like laser perforations around the chest, strategically placed between chambers to give ventilation where you need it most. The proud “USA” at the back of the jacket features a clever lenticular fabric that shifts from blue to red. Other pieces of the collection include custom tech fleeces, backpacks and gloves, all of which channel the vibrant sense of patriotism that Olympic games tend to inspire. Enjoy this first look at the USA Medal Stand apparel as we inch closer to the Sochi 2014 Winter Olympic Games, and head over to Nike’s mini-site for more information.
