Ahead of competition in Tokyo, Nike debuts progressive new collections featuring sustainable materials for all athletes. As the growing climate crisis continues to disrupt competition and training, Nike’s sustainable innovations signal the brand’s commitment to helping protect the future of the planet — and, consequently, the future of sport. Highlights include uniforms for USA basketball, progressive advances in track and field kits and exuberant styles for those federations ushering skateboarding into the games.

Nike SB Skateboarding Kits: 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 Brazil will compete in uniforms designed with 100% recycled polyester, pattern efficiency for minimal waste and bright, bold styling (crafted in collaboration with Dutch artist Parra) to celebrate each nation’s unique sport culture.

So here is what each of your favorite skateboarders from the USA, France, and Brazil will be wearing when they compete at the Olympics:

1.) 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.

 2.) 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.

3.)  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.
