The 2016 Rio Olympic Games, and all that goes with it, can be felt everywhere. Indiana Pacers superstar and Team USA member Paul George showcased how far-reaching that scope truly is by unveiling his personal Olympic swag bag.
The bag, which was supplied to 1,200 American athletes, per News.Nike.com, features a variety of wearable gear. For George, his personal bag included Team USA practice jerseys and shorts, a red, white and blue warm-up jacket, a gray, patched American hoodie, an American eagle-themed T-shirt, and a secondary jacket to rock.
Not a bad haul for any athlete headed for the sunny skies of Rio de Janeiro.
As one would expect, the materials used are top-of-the-line. Breathable mesh patterns, robust cotton and strong stitching create a vortex of goodness.
Tucked away in the giant swag bag lies the crowning jewel of George’s collection: a fresh, Olympic-themed pair of Nike’s Hyperdunk 2016 "Elite" model.
Constructed with a Flyknit upper and a sock-liner attached to the ankle, this “Elite” Hyperdunk goes well beyond the original iteration of the shoe—an already prominent basketball sneaker.
Equipped with a red Flyknit base, icy, traction sole and white layers of sidewall, the Olympic Hyperdunk “Elite” is nothing to scoff at. George should be rocking these kicks along with the rest of his gear as the 2016 Rio Games progress.
Special thanks goes out to PG13 for sharing his Olympic swagger, and good luck, Team USA. Make us proud out there.
