Two of America’s most iconic brand names have come together over a sport invented on the same coast as both brands stem from. Nike and Levi’s have created a capsule collection built specifically for skateboarders, using Levi’s 511 jean and Nike’s Omar Salazar LR Signature shoe at its core.
The jeans will be available in two different versions, a special Made in the USA 511 Skateboarding Team Edition ($198 USD) and the 511 Skateboarding ($98 USD), each in an array of colors and washes. Featuring denim sourced from the renowned Cone Mills, both slim-fitting styles feature a super strong Vectran weave alongside Nike’s Dri-Fit moisture management system and Levi’s WaterLess finishing process.
The Jeans will sit alongside the rest of the offerings which include the forementioned Levi’s x Nike Omar Salazar LR Signature shoe ($85 USD), a Trucker Skateboarding Jacket ($100 USD) and a Nike Dunk Low Pro ($98). The release begins July 4 for the Made in the USA 511 Skateboarding Team Edition and Omar Salazar LR while the rest of the collection drops on August 1.
