The Best Sneaker Moments From Tokyo 2020
The Olympic flame may now be extinguished in Tokyo, but that doesn’t mean we can’t keep reminiscing about the fire on the feet at the latest Summer Games. As always, the biggest sportswear brands in the world used the Games as a platform to showcase their freshest and fastest footwear on the world’s most talented athletes. Meanwhile, new sports in the program gave us a glimpse at sneakers we’re not used to seeing on this big stage.
Nike dominated the track with the Air Zoom Maxfly, as adidas complemented the five rings with 4D on a number of their sponsored teams. At Ariake Urban Sports Park, Nike SB was the footwear of the choice, while another Aussie classic was unveiled by ASICS.
These were just a few of the highlights! Here’s a look back at some of our favourite sneaker moments from 2020. Thankfully, we only have to wait three years until Paris!
