Parra collabs with Nike for 2020 Olympic skate uniforms

Nike has announced that it will be supplying kits at this summer’s Tokyo Olympic Games, for the USA, French and Brazilian skate teams.

Each federation will be kitted with uniforms designed by Dutch artist Piet Parra, who has become a regular Nike collaborator.

Made from 100 percent recycled polyester, the Nike SB uniforms have put sustainability at the forefront, while Nike’s pattern efficiency techniques have also been used to eliminate waste in the production process.

Each jersey has a colorful design that’s unique to each country. The USA jersey is inspired by basketball and features the iconic bald eagle on the lower left of the jersey. The Brazilian offering is inspired by football and features a toucan on the lower left of the jersey, while the French top is a nod to traditional tennis get-up, and features a Rooster.

Further information will follow soon on release dates and stockists on www.nike.com.
