Nike Skateboarding 2020 Olympics collection

To celebrate the debut of skateboarding at this year's Olympic Games, Nike is kitting out global teams in gear that you can shop soon.

For the first time ever, skateboarding will be an official sport at this year's Olympic Games, a milestone that has not gone unnoticed by Nike. The label has already jumped in and collaborated with Dutch artist and long-time collaborator Piet Parra to design special Federation Kits for the USA, France and Brazil teams.

Each of the uniforms has been crafted from 100% recycled polyester and represents a famous sport from each country. The USA gets a nod to its basketball culture, with the arrival of a traditional basketball jersey complete with bald eagle graphics.

New sneaker designs have also been created to complement the packs, with the SB Bruin copping two major upgrades. The Bruin ZoomX has been reimagined in a Flyknit upper with suede inlays and Flypate technology for maximum responsiveness. The kicks arrive in colourways "Dangerous" and the SB-exclusive "Blue Flame".

The Bruin React meanwhile gets a softer touch with a traditional suede upper and drop-in React foam midsole. Similar to the ZoomX, it will be available in the "Blue Flame" exclusive colourway, along with a hue dubbed "Rawthentic".
