Nike SB celebrates skateboarding’s debut at the 2020 Olympics with some very steezy new pieces.
Inspired by a traditional basketball jersey, the USA’s Nike SB x Parra jersey represents freedom. A bald eagle is stitched on the lower left of the jersey, while the nation’s country code is placed on the left sleeve.
Nike SB x Parra’s France jersey is an ode to the traditional tennis polo. Representing hope and faith, a rooster is stitched on the left chest of the jersey, while the French flag appears on the left sleeve.
Inspired by a traditional soccer jersey the Nike SB x Parra Brasil jersey employs a stitched toucan located on the lower left of the jersey to represent happiness. Brasil’s country code “BRA” is place on the left sleeve.
For skateboarding’s debut on this summer’s global stage, Nike SB will introduce kits on the forefront of sustainable design. Athletes representing Team USA, France and Brasil will compete in uniforms designed with 100 percent recycled polyester, pattern efficiency for minimal waste and bright, bold styling (crafted in collaboration with Dutch artist Parra) to celebrate each nation’s unique skate culture.
