Matalan: A Guide to Summer Occasionwear



Does anyone remember how Nike killed it during the 2012 London Olympics by causing a Flyknit frenzy? Well you can expect the same this summer when the torch is lit in Rio.

Here’s an early peak at what Nike Sportswear  have got lined up for this year’s Olympic Games. In all American style on July 4th Nike will be rolling out some retro releases.

In this particular delivery, you’ll see the Air More Uptempo, viagra Air Presto, Air Max BW, Air Pegasus ’92, Presto Flyknit, and Zoom Pegasus 92/16 presented, all decked out in USA-proper looks of red, white and blue, with gold accents.

Make sure to check back with us, closer to the release date for more details on Nike’s USA-specific Rio Olympic kicks.
