Nike’s LunarTerra Arktos winter boots combine sneaker styling – bright soles, colorful polymer sides, a chunky swoosh – with some all-American toughness. The original model, a popular leather and yellow plastic stunner is street stylish, but the updated version due out for the Olympic Opening Ceremonies are meant to be the perfect complement to a gold medal. These simple navy boots with starry liners and red Lunarlon cushioning next to the white sole, are subtle and patriotic at the same time – something that cannot be said of Ralph Lauren’s official team sweaters. Because the more garish touches are actually inside the boot (it’s lined with gold stars), you’ll be able to wear these after the Olympics. And because they’re so lightweight, you’ll be able to wear them into spring. Buy them fast. They will likely sell out almost immediately. [$300; nike.com]
