Because nobody remembers second.
The Nike Olympic Pack for the 2016 games in Rio should probably remind us all that the Swoosh (and every last Nike brand sponsored Olympian) is only in it to win. With this Olympic sneaker ode, silver or bronze gets no love in the patriotic pack games.
The Olympic pack, due out later this year, consists primarily of throwback silhouettes with added red, white, and blue gravitas. Prestos, Flyknit Prestos, the Air Max BW, the Air Pegasus 32 and an updated Pegasus 32 all collide for victory but, the real champ? Scottie Pippen’s Air More Uptempo. Cue the National Anthem, y'all.
As of now, we have no official release date for the Nike 2016 Olympic Pack, but we'll keep you posted well before that torch hits Rio.
