The Winter Olympics, in Sochi, Russia, will begin this Friday, February 7. And while the average viewer is getting ready to watch hockey, bobsledding, and curling, everyone with an interest in sneakers will have their eyes glued to the feet of the U.S. Olympians who make it to the medal podium.
This year, American athletes will be wearing the Nke Flyknit Trainer Chukka FSB, a wool-blend sneaker that's built to endure the cold of the Russian climate. But the defining characteristic of the sneaker is its bright Volt sole that's inspired by the SFB, Nike's Special Field Boot.
If you can't make it to Sochi, and by that we mean, aren't an Olympian, you can purchase the sneakers from Mita for $206. Beer-stained hockey jersey not included.
