When you can shop Nike’s Air Max 97 Olympic Rings 2020 pack
Get in the Olympic spirit with one of five Nike drops celebrating the massive international athletic competition.
Update: The Nike Olympic Rings 2020 pack is now available for sale on the Australian Nike site, as well as in usual Nike stockists.
Whenever there's a major upcoming event, you can count on Nike to create a sneaker pack to celebrate. Having already dropped a first look at both a Chinese New Year line and a Valentine's Day collection, the mega label has now set its sights on the 2020 Olympic Games.
Release date: 22 January (US)
While the Games, which will be held this year in Tokyo, won't kick off until July, Nike has gotten in the spirit early with five new colourways of its Air Max 97 silhouette.
The shoes have been made to represent each of the five Olympic rings with "Amarillo", "Challenge Red", "Lucky Green", "Photo Blue" and "Black" styles all up for grabs. Each sneaker sees its entire upper decked out in its designated colour and paired with a white midsole and translucent full-length Air unit.
The mesh uppers are overlaid with sleek Japanese bullet train-inspired stripes which are coated in reflective material. Golden Swooshes on the tongue tab and sides meanwhile add some contrast to the style.
Striped tongue pull tabs featuring all five colours and heel tabs featuring golden Japanese text round out the designs.
If you're after an even bolder style to celebrate the Games, Nike has also now revealed yet another take on the Air Max 97 silhouette. Dubbed 'Gold Medal', the design comes dripping toe to heel in metallic gold and is set to be released later in the year.
