Initially, Gauff made the Olympic team for Tokyo in 2021 at just 17 years old. However, she had to withdraw just days before the opening ceremony after testing positive for COVID-19. Now, with her new Coco CG1 shoes, she is ready to shine on the Olympic stage.

The latest iteration of Coco’s iconic high-rise shoe proudly features the colors of the American flag. The shoe is predominantly red, with blue star-studded patterns inside and on the outsole. The red and white stripes of the American flag are creatively incorporated into the lace loops. True to the Coco CG1 design, the shoe includes unique graphics, logos, and lace jewel details inspired by Coco Gauff herself.
