The thoroughly modern royal family of The Netherlands traced its roots to the Dutch state’s founding in 1544, when it won its independence from Spanish rule. Thus, the House of Orange‘s namesake was forever linked to the nation and its people. The tradition lives on today as Team Netherlands takes the field at various venues over at the 2012 Summer Olympics in London. One constant reminder will be the specifically designed ASICS GT-II. In vibrant orange suede with brilliant white details, the top 3 eyelets feature The Netherlands’ flag colors of blue, white, and red, as well as a matching outsole. Exclusive to members of Team Netherlands as off-field wear during these games, the special ASICS GT-II is also available now as an in-store purchase at England’s end clothing.
