Despite the fact that the 2016 summer games in Rio de Janeiro have just come to an end, Nike has already created a fresh design that tributes the 2020 Olympics. In order to do so, the brand offers a sleek colorway that's mostly navy and black.

The tongue of the sneakers shows a label in Japanese, as a means to liken it to the city of Tokyo where the 2020 Olympics will take place. The Nike swoosh is depicted in a print that similar to tie-dye, as is an accent on the heel. This shows shades of navy and white leaking into one another, working to pull the overall colorway together, as the navy upper is starkly contrasted with a clean white sole.

Although the 2020 Olympics aren't too close in time, Nike's commemorative 'LunarGlide 8 SP' is already available online for purchase.
