COVID sent many industries and events to a screeching halt. One of which was the anticipated Tokyo Summer Olympics. With life slowly resuming to its original pace and the Olympics officially starting next month, many of Nike’s Olympic releases that were first revealed early last year are now seeing the light of day. Among the releases are collaborations with AMBUSH and UNDERCOVER, as well as new releases from Jun Takahashi and Nike’s Gyakusou running line. Check out what’s in-store below and expect to see the collection’s roll out in July.
Made in partnership with Nike, the Tokyo-based fashion label announced a new iteration of its Dunk High collab. The latest iteration, teased by Yoon Ahn herself, boasts a “Flash Lime” colorway. Yoon also took to Instagram to share looks at a Nike sweatsuit of neon yellow and hot pink proportions, first revealed at last year’s Future Sports Forum event, which matches the upcoming “Flash Lime” Dunk High as well as February’s “Cosmic Fuchsia” pair.
