Nike’s been anticipating the upcoming Olympic Games for quite a while. The Nike Basketball USA Collection includes a diverse selection of footwear for our American athletes to sport in Rio. Thus far we’ve seen kicks from KD, LeBron, Kyrie and Kobe. There’s also a USA iteration of the popular, Nike Hypershift. Assuming these Superstar athletes will choose to compete for their country, Nike’s prepared to keep them laced from the ground up.
As expected red/white/blue colorways are found across the five silhouettes. The LeBron 13 Low USA features a blue upper, detailed with white stars. The sneaker is contrasted with red accents and rests atop a partially translucent sole. The KD 9 USA has ditched the stocking concept. This mid-cut silhouette boasts a white upper with blue and red accents. Flyknit and Zoom Air technology contribute to a more comfortable fit. Kyrie’s USA kicks boast a similar makeover. The Nike Kyrie 2 has a blue midfoot strap that pairs well with an iconic red Swoosh.
