After the spectacular London Olympics, Nike is ready to amaze its fans with a new pair of awesome footwear. Inspired by the golden successes that the USA had during the Olympics, the sportswear manufacturer created the Team USA Gold Medal pair of sneakers.
The shoes also celebrate the 30th anniversary of Air Force 1, and is part of the AF1 XXX Pearl Collection. Made of white leather, the sneakers feature a metallic gold paint and a very nice vintage gold patina on the medial region. The same golden hue appears on the tongue and on the inside lining, but this is not all.
Apparently the designers of these awesome shoes decided that all this gold was not enough, so they added random gold speckles all over the sneakers, covering everything, including the laces and leather-wrapped midsole. The launch date for the new Nike Team USA Gold Medal sneakers is August 31.
