Nike comes out with special podium shoes for victorious Rio Olympians

NAME a sport and Nike probably has specialized footwear for it. 

The Swoosh even has specific pairs for Olympians who will receive medals on the podium in the 2016 Rio Olympics.

With a bright neon-green colorway, the Nike Free RN Flyknit "Medal Stand" was recently announced as the assigned shoes  for Olympians to wear for Rio 2016. According to information on Olympic apparel for August, Brazilian and American athletes would wear these pairs when they accept their medals.

In the 2012 London Olympics, Nike athletes also wore a similar-looking Nike Flyknit Trainer in a volt/black colorway.

The Nike Free RN Flyknit pictured releases on Aug. 6 (Aug.7 in Manila).
