The Olympics are exciting enough on their own, but when fashion is thrown into the mix, the enthusiasm soars. The Converse Chuck Taylor 'Country' collection is the perfect example in this regard.

With the Olympics on the roll, we're going to see a lot of hard work being rewarded and put on display the way it deserves. This edition of the Olympics has already proven very inspiring in more ways than one. With this special occasion in mind, several fashion designers and retailers have put their creativity to good use, creating a variety of covetable goods to celebrate this occasion. One of the most exciting projects with the London Olympics theme is, without doubt, the Converse Chuck Taylor 'Country' collection.

The new collection by the label is inspired by seven different nations: Brazil, China, Germany, Italy, Jamaica, United Kingdom and, of course, USA. The iconic high top sneakers are beautifully customized with digital printed graphics which depict some of the leading cultural influences and some of the most recognizable symbols of the country it represents. To clear out any confusion, the flag of the country depicted is placed on the tongues of each pair.

Whether you're the patriotic type or simply go for your favorite motifs, the new designs can certainly be extremely tempting. These designs can surely be a collector's delight for brand fans or a fun way to add a pop of color and additional visual interest to your casual looks without sacrificing comfort. Either way, those interested in any of the designs will have to keep in mind that this collection is a limited edition one and it's already available. The shoes retail for $75 on the brand's official website. You may also be able to find these at the brand’s retailers worldwide.
