Levi's and Nike have come together for a series of products manufactured with skateboarders in mind. Based on their popular 511 skinny jean, the 511 Skateboarding Jean draws upon its cousin, the 511 Commuter Jean, by combining the great fit, cut, and craftsmanship Levi's is known for, and Nike's technological prowess and understanding of the modern-day athlete's needs. Made from Cone Mills fabrics, the 511 SkateboardingJean features Nike Dri-Fit technology, a little bit of stretch, and Levi's pantented Water<Less finishing technique, which conserves water while making the jeans super soft.
The jeans will also come in a limited Made in the USA Team Edition, also made from Cone Mills fabrics, and utilizing Nike's Dri-Fit moisture management system, wicking away sweat while keeping you looking fly while you land those ollies and kickflips. A strong Vectran weave makes the jeans more durable without adding to the weight. Adding to the reinforcement of the denim are copper rivets and extra-strong thread and bar tack stitching, which means they'll hold their own after more than a few bails.
Rounding out the collection are a Denim Trucker Jacket, Nike x Levi's Omar Salazar LR Signature Shoe, and a Nike SB x Levi's Dunk Low Pro. The Made in the USA 511 Skateboarding Jean and Nike x Levi's Omar Salazar Signature Shoe drop on July 4 at select skate shops, while the rest of the collection will be available at a wider range of skate shops, Levi's stores, and online.
