The Denver Broncos and Carolina Panthers will make history when they compete in the 50th edition of the Super Bowl on Sunday.

To celebrate this golden anniversary in style, Nike has unveiled two special collections: the Super Bowl 50 Nike Gold Collection and the Super Bowl Nike Speed Destroyed Collection.

The SB50 Gold Collection includes men’s and women’s football and training gear, as well as sideline apparel. One of the coolest items in the line is the Nike Vapor Untouchable 2—the highest performance cleat Nike has ever created. It’s lighter than the previous model (weighing in at just 9.5 oz.) to help you feel light-footed on the field. Plus, it’s incredibly adaptive with a sock-like fit. The most notable change from the Vapor Untouchable’s first iteration lies in the stud design. Rather than a common conical shape, the studs are four-sided to create a quicker and crisper plant, pivot, and push off. And of course, the special golden colorway is a nod to 50 years of Super Bowl history.

In addition to the Vapor Untouchable 2, you’ll notice some players wearing the Vapor Jet 4.0 during the big game. These football gloves are constructed with Magnigrip Palm technology to maximize grip and surface area, which is perfect for wideouts and tight ends who need to have the most reliable hands on the field. Pores on the knuckles increase breathability so you won’t have to worry about your hands overheating. True to Nike’s commitment to both performance and style, the gloves are packed with Bay Area flair as a shout out to the hosts of Super Bowl 50. A “5-0” in large font is printed on the palms and contains a faded image of the San Francisco skyline—including the Golden Gate Bridge—in the background.

The Nike Speed Destroyed Collection honors athletes who have broken records. The SB50 Destroyer Jacket will have you channeling your inner team captain. It’s got leather sleeves, containing sewn-on patches that highlight impressive Super Bowl statistics. The back of the jacket is embroidered with 50 gold stars—the 50th created with gold thread to indicate the milestone anniversary. The cuffs and collar are also gold to complete the stylish look.

Nike Women's Super Bowl 50 Element White Half-Zip Performance Top

The SB50 White Half-Zip Performance Top, which comes in both men’s and women’s styles, is a comfortable pullover that can be worn during a pre-game workout or a Super Bowl viewing party. Dri-FIT technology wicks away moisture—whether it’s sweat or precipitation—to keep you warm. The athletic fit is snug, yet stretchy so you can move freely without excess material gathering. A Super Bowl 50 logo is printed on the chest, and the interior features a snazzy gold-colored neck taping that’s cool and comfortable.
