Sneaker: Nike Flyknit Racer
Year: 2012

The entire Team USA team was laced with brightly colored Nike Flyknit Racers for the Olympics in London. Athletes like Michale Phelps and Ryan Lochte (among many others), lit up the eyes of on-looking sneakerheads by wearing Volt colored Nike Flyknit Racers. Clearly, with the amount of people wearing Flyknits today, the approach worked just the way it was suppoed to.
