You Can Now Get Your Feet in the Same Kicks As Gold-Medal Olympians

You may have noticed something other than the flashy hardware catching your eye on the podium in Rio: The killer kicks. A major departure from the patriotic red, white, and blue that's standard on all of Team U.S.A.'s official gear, this year's medalists are all taking the podium in neon green Nike's. The good news: You can get your hands on a pair.


Nike has been outfitting athletes' gold medal-winning feet for years. In fact, they first introduced the now hugely popular Flyknit technology as part of the official Olympic gear for the 2012 Games in London. And in Rio, the medal winners are debuting Free RN Flyknit kicks in a vibrant shade of "Volt." You can almost feel a jolt of competitive juice just looking at them.


#TeamUSA is SO PROUD of the #FinalFive for winning GOLD!

The Free RN Flynkit is designed to give an ultra-comfortable and natural feel when you're hitting the pavement (or podium, in the case of the Final Five), and is sold in the Olympic Volt shade at for $130.
