The US Olympic Team Gets Exclusive Nike ACG Gaiadome Flyease Boots

The start of the 2022 Winter Olympic Games in Bejing is less than two weeks away. Though the stands will be empty, the events themselves are sure to be full of action and intrigue – and throughout them, Team USA will be kitted out in some of Nike's finest wares. Chief among these special Winter Olympics products is a unique Nike ACG boot dubbed the Gaiadome FlyEase that's exclusive to Team USA.

Dressed in technical grey and embellished with Team USA's signature red and blue hits, the ACG Gaiadome FlyEase rises well above the wearer's ankle, is cushioned with Zoom Air and is lined with GORE-TEX to keep the wearer's feet warm and dry. Its most advanced piece of tech, however, is the hands-free FlyEase lacing system that's present on the heel, enabling one-hand entry and removal. It's made exclusively for US Olympic athletes and won't see a retail release.

Besides the ACG boots, there's also a selection of 'Medal Stand' apparel that applies FlyEase principles to jackets, snow pants, undergarments and more, making for a collection that's easy to wear for Olympians and Paralympians alike and was designed with input and feedback from the disability community. 'As a winter athlete, I love the thought put into designing for the elements', says Oksana Masters, a 10-time Paralympic medalist. 'Not only is the apparel thoughtful in design, but it is also thoughtful in execution. I am thankful to have been given the chance to be a thought partner with Nike in this process'.,

Team USA's special ACG Gaiadome Flyease Boot won't arrive at retailers, but you can expect the 'Medal Stand' apparel collection to hit the Nike webstore later this year. We're holding out hope that the Gaiadome Flyease will be produced in other colourways that will be available to the general public too!
