Nike Kyrie 2 "USA"

BUY IT NOW
History
When it debuted back in December, Kyrie’s sophomore Nike signature really struck a chord with sneakerheads, both on-court and off. And with his big time performance in the NBA Finals, and pursuit of Olympic gold this summer, the Kyrie 2 is going to continue to shine.

Who wore them?
In addition to Kyrie himself, the shoe was a Nike iD and PE banger, spotted on-court throughout the year, across the NBA and college ranks. We were particularly fond of the PEs Kyrie’s alma mater Duke laced up.

Who is going to wear them?
In addition to Uncle Drew himself, USA women’s team members Sue Bird, Sylvia Fowles and Angel McCoughtry have also been spotted rocking the Kyrie 2.

Key Features
– Zoom Air heel unit provides responsive cushioning.
– Dynamic Mid-Foot strap for lock down stability.

Nike Hyperdunk 2016 Flyknit "USA"

BUY IT NOW
History
Being widely recognized as the signature sneaker for Nike Basketball, the Hyperdunk often serves as a bellwether for the innovations we’ll see throughout the basketball segment in the years to come. And the Hyperdunk 2016 is no different. With the original silo making it’s world debut at the 2008 Beijing Olympics, the Hyperdunk is rooted in Olympic tradition. Which is why it’s perfect that the Swoosh boys brought out this neck-breaking Flyknit treatment just prior to the Summer Games in Rio this year.

Who wore them?
Prior to the Summer Games, Paul George was serving as the pitch man for the model as he could be seen wearing them in print ads.

Who is going to wear them?
You’ll be able to catch the Hyperdunk 2016 Flyknit on the feet of some of the world’s greatest men’s and women’s players this Summer, like Paul George and Elena Delle Donne.

Key Features
– Full-length Zoom Air unit provides low-profile responsive cushioning.
– Knit-In compression sleeve provides snug support while allowing for breathable flexibility in the collar and ankle.

Nike LeBron Zoom Soldier 10 "USA"

BUY IT NOW
History
Typically spotted on LeBron James during his now-routine late post-season runs, the Nike LeBron Zoom Soldier line is one bred with post-season and Olympic pedigree. From it’s short inaugural outing in the 2007 NBA Finals and it’s Olympic debut in 2008’s Summer Games in Beijing, all the way to Bron’s most recent awe-inspiring title run, the Zoom Soldier line has redefined what a “team shoe” could be.

Who wore them?
Lebron James leaned on the Zoom Soldier 2 and 6 models during his gold medal runs in the 2008 and 2012 Olympic games.

Who is going to wear them?
While LeBron opted out of this year’s Summer Games, we’ve seen DeMarcus Cousins favor the Soldier line in years past. Though he’s been lacing up the new Hyperdunks and Zoom Clear Outs, we wouldn’t be surprised if Boogie strapped up these fire Soldier 10s at some point too.

Key Features
– Heel and Forefoot Zoom Air units deliver ultra-responsive cushioning.
– Triple-strap system and inner compression sleeve provide a secure, custom fit.

Nike Hyperdunk 2016 "USA"

“The signature shoe of Nike Basketball.” Emerging on retail shelves just weeks prior to it’s Flyknit-clad brother, the Nike Hyperdunk 2016 continues the tradition of excellence the silhouette has become synonymous with.

Who wore them?
Just like it’s Flyknit counterpart, the Hyperdunk 2016 is so new, you really didn’t see it laced up in the NBA this past season. But you can bet this model is always a preferred selection for some of the best big man in the world.

Who is going to wear them?
The Hyperdunk 2016 has been spotted on the likes of DeMarcus Cousins and DeAndre Jordan, as well as several USA women’s team members such as Tina Charles and Tamika Catchings.

And fortunately for current sneakerheads, the Air Jordan XXXI is an absolute banger.

Aside from His Airness himself, the Air Jordan signature line has been rocked by the finest basketball players the world has ever seen. From Ray Allen and Dwyane Wade, to modern superstars like Russell Westbrook and Kawhi Leonard.

Key Features
– A combination of Flyweave and synthetic leather supplies lightweight support.
– FlightSpeed technology harnesses the power of Nike Zoom Air for that explosive first step.

Nike Free RN Flyknit "Medal Stand"

BUY IT NOW
History
The latest and greatest from Nike’s game-changing Free line, the Free RN Flyknit will be catching the eyes of millions at this summer’s Rio Olympics. And with Nike’s tried and true marriage of Flyknit and Flywire, draped in that ubiquitous Volt colorway, American athletes are going to be looking as fresh as ever. While obviously not done-up in traditional red, white & blue, these sneakers are all Team USA as this is the pair athletes will be wearing if they earn on a spot on the medal stand.

Who wore them?
Being a brand new silo from the folks at Nike, these beauties haven’t seen much shine outside the stadiums of the Rio ceremonies…yet.

Who is going to wear them?
As part of the US Olympic Committee’s swag bag put together by Nike, for all Men’s and Women’s athletes, you can catch these head-turners on the feet of American athletes that make their way up to the medal stand.

Key Features

Nike LeBron 13 Low "USA Gold"

BUY IT NOW
History
With LeBron James fulfilling the royal prophecy that his nickname implies, his Nike signature line has continued to be Nike Basketball’s highest-profile sneaker. And with the LeBron XIII, and especially it’s low-top counterpart, Nike has delivered another crown jewel.

Who wore them?
LeBron James, of course! When you’ve been hoisting the Larry O’Brien trophy around all summer, these lows are a comfortable, breathable choice. LeBron’s low-top signatures have also been a favored on-court choice for his teammate J.R. Smith over the past couple years.

Who is going to wear them?
Since King James took the summer off to celebrate winning one for the ‘Land and ink another massive contract, look for the LeBron XIII Low to make moves off the court on any of the USA men’s players who rep Nike Basketball.

Key Features
– Low-profile Zoom Air units at the forefoot and an Air Max 180 unit at the heel give the wearer tremendously responsive cushioning while simultaneously providing excellent shock absorption.

Nike Air Force 1 Flyknit Low "USA"

BUY IT NOW
History
When Nike moved to bring their game-changing Flyknit material to the iconic Air Force 1, sneakerheads worldwide rejoiced. With the addition of everyone’s favorite woven upper, Nike’s legendary silhouette moved gracefully into a new era by shedding more than half of it’s weight from the original 1982 models. And not only did the shoe become dramatically lighter, the Flyknit provides a level of breathability never before seen in the Air Force line.

Who wore them?
While we haven’t seen many American Olympic athletes sporting the Flyknit AF1s yet, the Quai 54 model was quite popular amongst the players from this year’s annual world streetball tourney.

Key Features
– Woven Flyknit upper not only provides high levels of breathability, stretch and support, but the lightweight materials allow it to have shed 50% of it’s weight, from the original 1982 models

Nike Air Max 1 Ultra Flyknit iD "USA"

BUY IT NOW
History
Like the move to Flyknit for the iconic Air Force 1, we’re surprised it took Nike this long to bring Flyknit to the beloved Air Max 1. But just as we felt with the AF1 when Nike finally did bring the Air Max 1 Ultra Flyknit to market, they did it right. Not only have we received multiple debut colorways, including the no-brainer “OG Red,” the good folks at Nike also put this fresh new take on the revolutionary Air Max 1 on NIKEiD for us all to play with. And one makeup we’re particularly fond of is this modern take on one of our favorites, 2002s mesh “USA” colorway.

Key Features
– Woven Flyknit uppers provide dynamic flexibility and support and make this the lightest Air Max 1 ever.
– No sew film overlays in the upper enhance the shoe’s durability and structure, while the cored-out Ultra midsole and flex grooves in the forefoot area allow your foot to move more naturally.

Nike Kobe 11 Elite "USA"

BUY IT NOW
History
For the last 12 years, Nike’s Kobe Bryant signature line has been the showcase for some of the biggest technological advances in basketball sneakers. Described by designers as the perfection of Flyknit, the Kobe 11 features TPU threads interwoven in the upper, to give wearers the strongest iteration of Flyknit ever. And with the deadly combination of Lunarlon and Zoom Air units, Kobe’s final NBA season was as comfortable as ever.

Who wore them?
With the Black Mamba riding off into the sunset this year, the Kobe 11 became a massive “team” shoe, seen in PE and iD versions throughout the NCAA Tourneys. And in addition to Kobe Bryant himself, fellow USA men’s team member DeMar DeRozan rocked the Kobe 11s quite often throughout the NBA season.

Who is going to wear them?
If it ain’t broke, don’t fix it. That mantra applies just as well to athletic footwear, as it does to many things in life. Which is why DeMar DeRozan has been lacing up the Kobe 11s, in that fresh USA colorway, throughout the Rio Games.

Key Features
– This year’s Flyknit is lighter and more flexible than ever before, providing ultralight, form-fitting comfort.
– Full-length drop-in Lunarlon foam delivers soft, yet responsive cushioning, while Zoom Air in the heel maximizes that support.

Nike Air Zoom Pegasus 92 "USA"

BUY IT NOW
History
For over 30 years, the Nike Air Pegasus has remained a pillar of the running community and sport style in general. Though often under appreciated by the mainstream (especially in 2016), the Pegasus line has seen updates, almost annually, since it’s inception. The new Air Zoom Pegasus 92 is one of our favorite takes on the runners of the 80s and 90s, with it’s super sleek upper and ultra comfy ride.

Key Features
– Compression molded upper, with synthetic leather and TPU overlays deliver a track-inspired build, in a package with street style.
– Zoom Air unit in the heel provides responsive impact cushioning, while an Ortholite sock liner delivers ultra soft comfort.

Nike Air Zoom Talaria "USA"

BUY IT NOW
History
Back in 1997, just two years from introducing the world to the revolutionary responsiveness of Zoom Air technology, Nike really flexed and delivered the Air Zoom Talaria. Named after the winged sandals of the Gods and Godesses of Roman mythology, the Talaria was designed by, who else, but the legendary Tinker Hatfield. And after nearly 20 years, the world finally received a much-appreciated retro, albeit with a few modern tweaks, and even more modern colorways, like the fantastic USA makeup featured above.

Key Features
– A 3/4 length Zoom Air unit provides low profile cushioning and support, while maintaining a cushy, comfortable step.
– Forefoot groove enhance flexibility and allow for more natural foot movement, while mesh and synthetic suede offer breathability and durable support.

Nike Zoom KD 9 iD "USA"

BUY IT NOW
History
While perhaps not as prominent as the Kobe or LeBron signature lines, Nike’s KD signature series has had no shortage of bangers, and has quickly become a beloved favorite of sneakerheads, both on the court and off. And the KD 9 gives us all something to get hyped about: Flyknit. Employing a honeycomb Flyknit pattern to the shoe’s upper, and pairing it with a beloved cushioning system, the Nike Zoom KD 9 embodies not only progression in athletic footwear, but that of basketball as a whole.

Who wore them?
Kevin Durant, of course, all throughout his impressive 2015-16 playoff run. But being one of the first annual releases from Nike Hoops, the KD 9 was also huge among Nike-sponsored NCAA programs.

Who is going to wear them?
Kevin Durant will certainly be wearing different variations of the Nike Zoom KD 9 during the 2016 Summer Games and with this iD version, you can certainly make a USA-themed pair that is uniquely yours.

Key Features
– Hexagonal Flyknit pattern throughout the upper provides lightweight flexibility to support fluid motion and playstyle.
– Visible, tapered, full-length Zoom Air unit narrows from heel to forefoot to maximize impact protection, while amplifying the bounce synonymous with Zoom Air.

Nike Kobe 11 Elite iD "USA"

BUY IT NOW
History
The Nike Kobe signature line has a rich history of being available on NIKEiD as the first model you could add your personal customization spin to was the Zoom Kobe 2 back in 2007. With the introduction of Flyknit to the line with the Kobe 9 Elite Low, the model has only further cemented itself as a fan favorite on the NIKEiD platform.

Who is going to wear them?
If you don’t see DeMar DeRozan rocking the general release “USA” colorway during the 2016 Summer Games, you can bet he will have some PE designs at his disposal and likely ones you will be able to make yourself via NIKEiD.

Key Features
– This year’s Flyknit is lighter and more flexible than ever before, providing ultralight, form-fitting comfort.
– Full-length drop-in Lunarlon foam delivers soft, yet responsive cushioning, while Zoom Air in the heel maximizes that support.

Nike Air Pegasus 92 "USA"

BUY IT NOW
History
Boasting a fresh update of materials, the classic Air Pegasus 92 model from, well, 1992 has been revived once again by Nike Sportswear in celebration of the 2016 Summer Games. These runners also saw a retro release in 2012 for the London Games and for sneakerheads who love their runners, this classic USA Track & Field makeup is definitely one to have in the collection.

Who wore them?
This USATF iteration was first given out to Team USA runners for the 1992 Summer Games in Barcelona and while photo evidence is pretty scant, you can imagine superstars such as Carl Lewis and Gail Devers possibly lacing up these gems off the track.

Key Features
– Phylon midsole with an encapsulated Air sole unit provide that legendary lightweight cushioning that fans have come to expect from the Pegasus line.
– Mesh upper delivers breathable comfort, while a rubber outsole ensures durable traction.

Nike Air Presto iD "USA"

BUY IT NOW
History
Originally designed in the year 2000, and marketed as a “T-Shirt for your Feet,” the Nike Air Presto turned a lot of heads. Sized just like a t-shirt (S, M, L, etc), the Air Presto set itself apart from pretty much everything else on the market with a futuristic look and lightweight, formfitting, minimalist construction, often being seen as the predecessor of the Nike Free line. A favorite of both runners and collectors, with the creative power of NIKEiD, the Air Presto model has really come alive the past couple of years.

Key Features
– An encapsulated Air unit provides supremely responsive cushioning
– Snug elastic upper delivers a snug yet flexible fit to go along with a cushy phylon midsole.
