Nathan Chen Shows Off Nike’s ‘Court Legacy’ Tennis Shoes on ‘Jimmy Fallon’ Following Big Win at the Olympics

Superstar figure-skater Nathan Chen stopped by “The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon” this week to talk about winning gold at the 2022 Winter Olympics in Beijing and more.

Aptly, the Nike-sponsored athlete opted to wear a pair of the iconic brand’s ‘Court Legacy’ tennis shoes for the appearance. He chose the white colorway featuring royal blue Swoosh logos on the side, black midsole stripes and a hit of bright orange branding on the tongue. The style retails for just $60.

The three-time World champion, 22, paired the clean leather low-top silhouette with white socks, dark skinny jeans, a blue sweater and of course, his shiny gold medal. During the interview, Chen chatted with Fallon about returning to college at Yale and making mistakes during routines.
