The NIKE OLYMPIC PACK has launched in honour of the impending Rio Olympic Games this summer.
We’ve already taken a look at some of the individual models, but we’re taking a closer look at the retro designs in the pack, which really show how progressive the Nike athletic design department has been over the past decades. The line-up features classic silhouettes from past Olympic Games, commemorating the success of the USA team in track and field events: featuring four separate models, there’s something for everyone here. The NIKE AIR PEGASUS 92 featured heavily among American athletes, helping the Barcelona ’92 squad win an astonishing 108 medals, 37 of them gold. A cousin of the Pegasus 92, the NIKE AIR ZOOM PEGASUS 92 adds unique Zoom cushioning to the sole unit for maximum underfoot comfort. As you’d expect, the patriotic red, white and blue colourway works perfectly on this design.
The NIKE AIR CLASSIC BW OLYMPIC PREMIUM helped secure the 1996 US national team an incredible 44 gold medals on home soil at the Atlanta Olympics. Team USA branding on the tongue and a contrasting Swoosh are the perfect finishing touches to this iconic design. To round things off, the NIKE AIR PRESTO GPX released for the Sydney Olympics in 2002, adding a fresh graphic treatment to the foot-hugging lightweight Presto. The slight tweaks to the original design work well here, slightly brightening up the toned-down colourway of the OG release.
