When American sprinter Tyson Gay takes the Olympic Stadium track for the highly anticipated 100m event later this week, he’ll be wearing a pair of patriotic adidas adiZero Prime SP spikes, personalized with an American flag-inspired design and his daughter’s name, Trinity, embroidered on the tongue.

At just 3.5 ounces, the adiZero Prime SP is the lightest sprint spike ever made and 62% lighter than the adiZero Demolisher worn at the Beijing Games in 2008. The adiZero Prime SP will be available here at Eastbay in non-personalized colorways this month.

words // Brandon Richard

Nobody said it would be easy, and though Team USA coasted in the early stages of Sunday’s Barcelona exhibition, Argentina showed us exactly why they’re the world’s third ranked FIBA team. Despite trailing the United States by 15 points after the first quarter, the Argentines rallied for advantages in two of the remaining three quarters. However, game MVP Kevin Durant came up with timely buckets late in the fourth to help the Americans hold on to a slim 86-80 victory.

Durant scored 27 points in the game after knocking down 7-of-11 3-point attempts. Kobe Bryant added 18 points, while LeBron James rolled out his usual triple-threat stat line with 15 points, 7 rebounds and 5 assists. Manu Ginobili scored 23 to lead the way for Argentina.

Next up for the United States is rival Spain tomorrow afternoon.

Though they were tested like the Dream Team never was, Team USA celebrated the 20th Anniversary of the ’92 team’s dominance in Barcelona by wearing throwback jerseys. Check out the Dream Team kits and USA-themed kicks in this special edition of Sneaker Watch.

During this season of heightened patriotism, ASICS has revealed the limited edition GEL-Blur 33 2.0 Flag Collection, featuring a USA-themed shoe decked out in a complete red, white and blue colorway. In addition to the USA-themed shoe, the collection also includes Canadian and Brazilian make-ups. Inspired by country flags, the shoes feature unique mismatched designs. For the American version, the right shoe sports red-striped fabric, while the left shoe has white stars.

The U.S.A. version was recently debuted by ASICS athletes Lolo Jones, Bryan Clay, Ryan and Sarah Hall and Deena Kastor, amongst others, at the U.S. Track & Field Trials in Eugene, Oregon.

“The shoe is a fun and vibrant way to display patriotic spirit,” says ASICS Senior Product Manager, Tom Garza. “Each model uniquely represents its respective country – the United States shoe features stars and stripes, the Canada shoe has maple leaves and the Brazil shoe has bright and bold colors representative of the exotic country.”

These ASICS running shoes feature the brand’s all-new, modified MONO-SOCK contruction with stretch mesh for slipper-like comfort. ComforDry Sockliner is made from anti-bacterial material that not only reduces odor and moisture, but also provides additional cushioning. Personalized Heel Fit (or P.H.F.) creates a custom feel. A supportive external cage wraps the midfoot providing a secure and comfortable fit, ready for the road. Tooling includes the award winning GEL-Blur33 midsole and outsole and rearfoot GEL Cushioning System for shock absorption.
