Nike unveils team USA 2016 Olympic and Paralympic uniforms
Nike unveiled on Tuesday the signature medal-stand uniforms for Team USA athletes competing at the Rio 2016 Olympic and Paralympic Games, at a gallery-style opening at Studio 45 in New York City.
The reveal included a NikeLab team jacket and pant created for Team USA athletes’ medal-stand moments.
The Dynamic Reveal Jacket has ribbed knit sleeves which bares ribbons of red when the arms are in motion. The front panel is woven to protect against wind, while the engineered mesh back panel and side panels support ventilation.
The Dynamic Reveal Pants, available only to national team athletes, has a vertical ribbed zone which also flashes the same arresting shade as the jackets ribbing when athletes shift or bend.
Both garments have a contemporary athletic, fitted silhouette.
“The medal-stand uniforms for the 2016 U.S. Olympic and Paralympic Teams epitomize Nike’s unmatched innovation,” says Lisa Baird, USOC chief marketing officer, in a news statement. “Nike has perfectly blended strength, style and patriotism. When America’s finest athletes are standing proudly on top of the podium, they will represent all Americans with a sense of style and poise.”
Team USA athletes will also be wearing the latest generation of Nike Free footwear.
The Rio 2016 Olympics will begin on August 5.
Team USA NikeLab Dynamic Reveal Jackets will be available July 28 at nike.com/nikelab and select NikeLab stores.
