Day 2 of the 2016 Nike Innovation focused on the uniforms that athletes can expected to wear in the upcoming Rio summer games. To the accompaniment of a live orchestra, featuring musicians decked in black with matching black Nike LunarEpic Flyknits, athletes from various countries displayed their new kits on a circular track that acted as a makeshift runway. New basketball uniforms for Team USA were modeled by the Oklahoma City Thunder's Kevin Durant, who also wore the Nike Hyperdunk 2016. The Chicago Sky's Elena Delle Donne showed off the women's version. They were joined by Olympic Gold medalist Allyson Felix and soccer stars Ali Krieger and Megan Rapinoe, along with a host of athletes from Brazil, China, Canada and Germany. Visitors also got a closer look at track & field kits, soccer kits and basketball kits, all featuring Nike's AeroSwift technology. Check out our full recap in the gallery below.
