    Some of you may have already seen the handful of pairs that are specifically coming out for the Summer Olympics set to kick off in Rio at the start of August 2016, but it would appear there are more:

      Not as far as I'm aware of, but if I find anything I'll be sure and post it here.

      I'm not 100% clear on the sport pairs on the bottom. Are they literally running that green/white parting?

      Throws me off because there's an alleged Olympic Canada Jawbreaker posted in O-R which looks way different (but way cool)

      I'm going to go out on a limb here, but this may be the athlete pairs and not a general retail pair (similiar to what they did for the Oakley sponsored athletes at Sochi). Given that it was originally extracted from a Chinese website, it could be the Chinese Olympic team's colour combo (not sure why because they're usually in red). There's just not enough information out yet to clearly explain the green / white combo.

      The Jaw Breaker you're referring to might be for the Special Olympics Canada Winter Games starting in March.

      Any idea when the Chainlink or Holbrook will be released??? Is this going to be part of the R2 drop or a separate release?

      The Chainlink is already available through the following site: Oakley or
      CHAINLINK | OAKLEY
      The Holbrook, I've been told won't be available until March... possibly April.

      I wonder if they are coming to the US site or only available in Brazil.

      Are the white/green faded sports Rio pairs made for athletes only and given to them during the event or are they a regular release?
