Olympic attire that'll get you psyched for Rio 2016

adidas, Nike, Apple and more brands release Rio theme merch ahead of the biggest sporting event in the world

Olympic attire that'll get you psyched for Rio 2016
27 July 2016

If you think waving around your country's flag and painting your face in patriotic colours is a bit lame, there's now a cooler way to celebrate the 2016 Olympics.

Here's a roundup of the best Rio themed merchandise we've seen so far, featuring everything from Air Jordans to luxury watches.

Olympic Apple Watch band

Rep your country with one of 14 national flags decorating a limited edition nylon Apple Watch band, exclusively sold in Brazil at the VillageMall. Keep your eyes on eBay after the games finish, or to save some money, just hone your Art Attack painting skills on to a normal one.

Reported to be $100

Umbro Pro Training shirt

This Umbro Pro Training Vitor Football Jersey is unmistakably inspired by the victorious Brazil '94 World Cup winning jersey. You know you want to get drunk and put this shirt over your head, run around Wetherspoon’s and shout ‘GOOOOOOAL!’


Omega Rio watch

Omega is the official timekeeper for the Olympics, and for this year's Rio games they've released 2,016 special Speedmaster Mark II watches. As well as a stainless steel case with polished crown and scratch-resistant sapphire crystal, the luxurious timepiece also features a bronze ring, 18K yellow gold ring or a 925 silver ring on the sub-dial, mimicing the Olympic medals.


Ralph Lauren USA closing ceremony t-shirt

If you're still pouting over Brexit and Theresa May and need someone else to cheer on, this Ralph Lauren tee might be for you. Designed to be worn by Team USA during the closing ceremony of the Rio Olympic Games, this T-shirt is crafted with pride (and freedom, most probably) in the United States of America.


Eastpak Rio backpack

Eastpak celebrates the Rio Olympic Games with a limited edition Padded Pak'r inspired by the colours of Brazil, featuring Christ the Redeemer, Sugarloaf Mountain and Rio Carnival. We’re glad Ronaldo’s creepy grin has not ended up strewn across it as was originally planned.

Coming soon, £65

Team GB adidas t-shirt

This official t-shirt was designed in collaboration with Stella McCartney and is made with sweat-wicking performance fabric that draws sweat away from your skin to keep you comfortable, even though you'll probably just be on your sofa munching Quavers.


Nike Gold Medal Air Jordans

Just when you thought you had enough trainers, Nike’s Air Jordans go and release this Gold Medal pair with a full leather upper construction in royal blue and white.

Dropping 1 August

Oakley eyewear

Oakley, a brand with a deep rooted heritage of innovation and performance in sports, has launched a special-edition eyewear collection. All Oakley sponsored athletes will be seen wearing the sunglasses in Rio. You might be able to pull them off in an athletic sense, but we wouldn’t recommend wearing them with a leather jacket and skinny jeans.


adidas Team GB joggers

As Creative Director for Team GB in the Rio 2016 Olympics, Stella McCartney has teamed up with adidas to present these stretch cotton sweatpants. We know you probably watch most sports in your underpants, but show a little class for the next few weeks with these.
