We featured the United We Rise Nike Zoom Soldier II several times already. However, it’s a very interesting design – possibly the best colorway out there – and it deserves all the extra attention. Let’s focus on the reflective Tribal pattern, which is the main theme for USA Basketball gear this year. The multi-faceted graphic tells the story of many cultures coming together under the common theme of victory. Specific elements of the design include: The Statue of Liberty, represented by the torch | Stars and stripes representing the 50 American states | The date of the signing of the Declaration of Independence | Decorative elements from USA nation’s currency | The olive branch and arrows from the talons of the American eagle in the Presidential seal | Celtic, African and Native American symbols and influences | A bleeding heart representing Hispanic culture (info thanks to ridikulas via NT). All this can be found on all Nike 2008 Olympics apparel and shoes. As mentioned before the UWR Soldier II is a part of a special Nike “United We Rise” pack. Be sure to check out some other models like: Converse Wade Team | Nike Air Force 25 Low | Nike Hyperdunk | Jordan Olympia.
