The skateboarders  at Tokyo 2020 have been turning heads for more than one reason.

Not only is the sport making its Olympic debut, but it is doing so in STYLE!

Fashion and skateboarding have always gone hand in hand, meaning that Olympic uniform manufacturers were under pressure to deliver something memorable and unique in Japan.

It is fair to say they succeeded, with many fans heading online to enquire where they can purchase their nation’s skateboarding top.

There’s something for everyone, from newly-crowned men’s street Olympic champion  Horigome Yuto’s retro multi-coloured T-shirt to the plain white overalls of French skater Vincent Milou.
