Nike Basketball’s finest athletes are representing the USA out in Rio during this year’s Olympics and it’s only right that the Swoosh celebrate their journey toward a gold medal. Consisting of the KD 9, Kyrie 2 and, oddly enough, the LeBron Soldier 10 (King James isn’t playing in these Olympic Games), this trio of elite footwear will be a Quickstrike release that displays some thematic upgrades to coincide with an Olympic vibe.

The Kyrie 2 is covered with a “University Red” upper that also sports a translucent outsole. Gold can be found on its lateral Swoosh and additional gold detailing appears on the tongue and heel branding.

Donning the KD 9’s upper is obsidian-colored Flyknit that rests atop of an icy outsole for a flashy touch. In addition, you’ll also find a gold Swoosh on its lateral and medial sides, gold USA branding on its heel tab, and red within its sockliner for a finishing touch.

Despite LeBron James not participating in the Olympic games, the LeBron Soldier 10 makes its way into the trio in an all-white edition with gold speckling along its three straps. Similar to the Zoom KD 9 and Kyrie 2, this silhouette also hosts a clean translucent bottom with gold Swoosh branding.

The KD 9, Kyrie 2 and Soldier 10 will retail for $150, $120 and $140 USD respectively as followers can expect them to officially release on August 22.
