As a premium Team USA sponsor for the 2014 Sochi Winter Olympics, Nike has designed an exclusive version of their Lunar Terra Arktos for the event.

The Team USA version of the boot features a patriotic color scheme of deep navy, red, white, and gold. A custom inner bootie is a key feature of this supportive boot, which is decked out in white stars and a gold swoosh on this edition.



This sneaker-boot hybrid is a perfect fit for Russia’s cold weather event as it combines multiple characteristics into one. Insulation and weather protection were important features for this design, as well as the light-weight, comforting fit of a sneaker. With Flywire technology and the cushioning of the removable sock-like bootie, the Lunar Terra Arktos accomplishes just that.

 

With the Opening Ceremony of the XXII Winter Olympics today, we are sure to see these patriotic sneakers worn by the US athletes throughout many of the events. The Team USA Lunar Terra Arktos is available to public today, Friday, February 7th.
