Beside Ralph Lauren who already showed uniforms to be worn by Team USA at the 2014 Winter Olympics, Nike is another brand that will outfit American athletes for the opening and closing ceremonies of the 2014 winter olympics in Sochi, Russia. 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. It features a Team USA badge, Nike logo and USA insignia of a lenticular fabric that shifts from blue to red.
But, maybe the most interesting details are hidden elements such as the words “Land of the Free” and “Home of the Brave” embroidered in jacket hand pockets and an unspecified nod to legendary 1980 U.S. Olympic hockey coach Herb Brooks’ “This is Your Moment” speech.
On foot, U.S. athletes will wear a winterized version of the Nike Flyknit Chukka, equipped with a synthetic wool lining and water-resistant reflective skin.
The Nike Aeroloft 800 Summit Jacket will be available starting early January and the Nike Flyknit Trainer Chukka FSB in early February.
