(Relaxnews) – The all-American sports firm has revealed the futuristic new podium looks for Team USA’s athletes at the upcoming Winter Olympic Games in Sochi.

America’s Olympic and Paralympic athletes have lucked out with their warm-weather sporting gear for the Sochi 2014 games as sportswear giant Nike has created a futuristic and metallic look for the competitors.

On the podium, lucky medalwinners will wear a mix of Aeroloft jackets filled with warm goose-down (and featuring micro laser perforations for breathability) with tech pants for men and sculpt tights for women.

For footwear the athletes will slip into Nike high tops in a chukka boot style that features a one-piece ‘Flyknit’ knitted construction in wool, for a combination of warmth and lightness. Patriotic details abound, from the slogans embroidered inside the pockets and printed onto insoles to the ‘Stars and Stripes’ patterns which appears on the athletes’ gloves.

It’s not the only treat for the athletes. Fashion designer Ralph Lauren has also created luxe looks entirely made in the USA from Oregon for the closing ceremony.

In fact, it’s set to be something of a fashion competition in the Olympic village. Italian luxury legend Giorgio Armani has already revealed his EA7 uniforms for the Italian team at the games. Meanwhile Swedish fashion giant H&M will be dressing the Scandinavian country’s athletes in the new H&M Sport range, and French fashion label Lacoste has created the winter gear for France’s emblazoned with the famous crocodile logo.
