The sportswear brand has created uniforms for America's men and women basketball teams, and soccer jerseys for the USA, Korea and Nigeria teams. The apparel includes outfits for competition, the medal stand and training.
Nike has used a mixture of materials with the aim to make the attire more environmentally friendly. They include polyester created from recycled plastic bottles, recycled nylon, and rubber and yarn waste from the company's factories.
On the medal stand, athletes will wear Nike Air Vapormax sneakers made with 75 per cent manufacturing waste. The design for the sneakers,a combination of various textures, colours and shapes, was influenced by the appearance of waste piles.
