What Olympic athletes wear on the medal stand is perhaps the most important ensemble they’ll put on in their entire athletic career. Just as important as the Ralph Lauren opening and closing ceremony uniforms and even the garb worn on the competition field is the outfit the athletes don while representing our country as they receive a medal to celebrate their impossible dedication.
Nike recently revealed its Team USA medal stand uniform to the public, and the designs are as patriotic—and futuristic—as one could imagine. From high-tech, body heat-retaining silver parkas to trendy FlyKnit sneakers, Nike has created sporty pieces that are as appealing to the eye as they are wearable in winter temperatures. Not to mention, every piece offers a hidden message to signify the athletes’ home turf: "land of the free" and "home of the brave" stitched throughout.
