When 2 superbrands, in this case Levi’s and Nike come together for a collaboration, what do you get: yeah, absolutely! You got it (no pun intended) You get a super collection. This time we have what they call the high-‐performance denim for Skateboarding. Based on a like-minded design philosophy of creating products with intent and purpose, this collection was built specifically for skateboarders.
The 511 Skateboarding collaboration features timeless design, meticulous craftsmanship and the popular fit of the Levi’s® 511 Skinny. These jeans also integrate Nike’s innovative performance-enhancing fabric technologies to make the denim lighter, stronger and more comfortable.
The jeans will be offered in multiple colors and washes and will be accompanied by a small assortment of collaborative products, including a skateboard and a specifically-designed denim Trucker Jacket. As part of the collection, the two brands worked with Nike team rider Omar Salazar (from Jessie’s hometown) to create a special edition of his signature shoe.
And I can imagine using these jeans and sneakers for many other occasions, like hiking or just for fun, lounging and maybe strolling around and doing some shopping. Again, why don’t they think of us women, too? I would love to be able to wear these supposedly so comfy jeans as well, not to mention the sneakers! And you know what? I think I WILL!
