The Tokyo Olympics are just days away and NikeSB has released some kicks for their athletes to take part in the first time Skateboarding will compete in the Olympics. Nike Dunks have been some of the most sought after sneakers on the market, now Nike gets to show them on the biggest stage in sports.

Unlike most brands that you will see at this year’s Olympics, the Nike SB is not going with traditional colors for each country or even for the American skaters. Instead of the colors of the country, they are sticking to their famous style of crazy colorways and designs. Nike brought in 4 different collaborators in Parra, Quartersnacks, FTC, and Bandai. Parra has been tasked with matching their designs to the uniforms of the USA, Japan, France, and Brazil, while the others have focused more on skateboarding and Tokyo as a city. Both the FTC and Parra Dunks will be released on the SNKRS app for $110. Quartersacks and Gundam have not had a set release date, but could be one of the most craved drops of 2021.

Nike SB has always been known for having the best and most unique sneakers in the skateboarding world and they are not going to shy away on the world’s biggest stage. The skateboard department at Nike might be the most unique of them all, and with Nyjah Huston leading the pack we can anticipate seeing some rare Nike SBs on the Olympic podium.
