Patriotic palette meets optimistic accents on the latest footwear homage to Earth’s greatest international athletic competition.
While it instantly evokes so many classic Summer Games-styled shoes — Air Jordan 7, of course, or the Pegasus 92 — the Olympic Foamposite One is actually a brand new colorway entirely. The potential for instant-classic is certainly there though, as a white molded foam upper is framed by navy blue, with vibrant red inner-lining rounding out the ‘Murica motif. Finally, for that pop of championship optimism, medal-like gold pops on the branding, tongue-stripe and aglets. Again, it’s brand new, but you could easily confuse this for a decades-old OG.
The Olympic Foamposite One releases July 22, a full fortnight before the Rio Games opening ceremony.
