Blue mittens

The U.S. Olympic Committee hopes the mitten craze of the 2010 Olympics carries over to Sochi.

The USOC will start selling navy blue mittens with the embroidered words “Go” in red and “USA” in white on its website on Oct. 29, 100 days before the opening ceremony.

They’re available for presale on TeamUSA.org now for $14 per pair. The money raised will support U.S. Olympians.

Canada’s red mittens were the must-have item at the 2010 Vancouver Olympics. Giant Olympic merchandise stores sold out of the most popular sizes, and extra orders were made. The Canadians are coming out with a new set of mittens for Sochi.
