This year’s Winter Olympics will take place in Pyeongchang where temperatures will undoubtedly hit the freezing mark. As a result, Nike has developed Team USA’s Medal Stand Collection to assist athletes in going head-to-head against the frigid weather during the traditional medal ceremonies. Within the range, Nike welcomes a Summit Jacket System, Team USA Pant, NSW Gaiter Boot and Medal Stand Gloves. Its Summit Jacket System incorporates a Team USA Hypershield Summit Jacket with GORE-TEX® waterproof shell that houses a Team USA Insulated removable bomber jacket. As a bonus, engineered knit hand warmers are attached to the jacket’s sleeve for enhanced warmth. The Team USA pant is comprised of material from a DWR coat repels rain and snow. Additional details include USA branding that’s visible once its ankle zip is open.
The range’s NSW Gaiter Boot shares a lace-free lockdown and allows the wearer to customize their fit thanks to its ankle zipper and midfoot strap. The silhouette’s men’s iteration adds a FlyEase-inspired entry while the women’s edition takes on a higher cut with added heat reflective material. Closing out the pieces are the Medal Stand Gloves as it includes a waterproof layer and needed ventilation areas thanks to Nike’s AeroShield technology. A hidden zipper also allows for easier entry and removable when needed.
Nike’s Team USA Medal Stand Collection will launch on January 15 via Nike.com and select Nike retailers. What are your thoughts on Nike’s latest Olympic pieces for 2018?
