Train, Run, Travel in the New Nike City Ready Collection

With Nike City Ready, the debut launch from Nike Women's Collections, Maria Vu, Senior Creative Director Nike Women's, and an all-female design team deliver a balance of forward-thinking innovation and directional silhouettes.

"The Nike City Ready Motion Adapt Bra is a great example of our promise," explains Vu. "Our challenge was how to take our incredible motion adapt technology, and make it beautiful and really push it through a transformative aesthetic lens without compromising the performance." 

This same lens is applied to a full 9-piece collection of apparel and footwear, including bras, crews, pants and, of course, shoes.

With extra-long zippers, the Nike City Ready Collection Pant can be styled in numerous ways —including open at the middle to access pockets inside. A transparent upper makes the Nike Zoom Pegasus Turbo XX a true future-forward design statement.

The Nike City Ready Collection Motion Adapt Bra supports an athlete’s needs with an avant-garde silhouette, inspired by the curves of the female form. 

The Nike City Ready tights are designed to accentuate and flatter the female body with a curved waistband and exaggerated curved seamlines; they’re also made from a high-performing material that wicks while sculpting and flattering.

There’s Something Different About Nike Tech Pack

A glimpse of the latest Nike Tech Pack Collection reveals the familiar (jackets and sweatpants that provide warmth via a modern take on fleece and knit) and the unfamiliar (layering pieces including sports bras, crop tops, tights and more). Evolving beloved running and training silhouettes within the collection nods to the future of apparel design at Nike, where a design-forward philosophy that harnesses a commitment to sports innovation takes precedence.

“We have a powerful vision for Nike apparel: to lead with innovation that makes athletes better, pushing the edges of both performance and style,” says Kurt Parker, Nike’s Vice President of Apparel Design. “Through new manufacturing technologies and new materials, we are driving a bold future where everything is designed with movement in mind.”

In this instance, designers combined a new waffle knit and woven performance materials, which they developed using years of body motion and mapping analysis gathered from studying the top athletes in the world in Nike’s Sport Research Lab. This led to a new expression of Nike Tech Pack for spring 2019: a more versatile package that provides pieces for a range of weather and workouts. 

Limited releases of the Spring 2019 Nike Tech Pack Collection will be available beginning December 20.

Taboo’s Style Origins Revealed in the Holiday N7 Collection

This season’s 2018 Nike N7 Collection is inspired by rapper Taboo’s relationship with his Native American heritage, which helped to develop his professional style and gives him pride for his cultural roots.

“My initial style influence was from my grandmother taking me to see traditional dancing in East L.A,” says Taboo, who is an ambassador for this year's collection along with professional gymnast Ashton Locklear. “I was influenced by how they put their outfits together. They wore boots; I wore sneakers. So I started with footwear and accessorized my outfit around that. And it grew from there. My dance style comes from watching ceremonial dance. That’s who I am. I represent what was started hundreds of years ago.”

That traditional Native American dance influence appears in the new collection through intricate beadwork patterning and a color palette from the natural world.

The Nike N7 collection releases November 7 on nike.com and at select retailers.

N7 Ho18 09022 Re

Taboo was inspired by the colors of the solar system, pulling shades from a tonal mix of nebulas and constellations. One such color, a varsity red, appears on the front of the men’s N7 Club FZ Hoodie.

N7 Ho18 07953 Re

Appearing in the beadwork-style pattern throughout the apparel is a nod to the number seven, which is explained in the Nike N7 mission statement: “In every deliberation, we must consider the impact of our decisions on the next seven generations.” The front pattern on the Women’s N7 Rally FZ Hoodie, worn by Ashton Locklear, features three arrows pointing forward, three arrows pointing backward and an emblem in the center.

Darker tones in the men’s collection similarly appear in the women’s apparel, like the "Geode Teal" in the Women’s N7 Boycut Tee.

The Men’s N7 Pant provides the freedom of shorts and the comfortable fit of leggings.

Nike SB x NBA Collection

The Nike SB x NBA Collection draws from basketball’s enduring influence on skateboarding. Highlighting classic silhouettes, the collection unites two cultures with distinct crossovers in style and function — a fact skaters themselves know well.

“Growing up in Southern California in the '80s was what got me into basketball,” says Nike SB skateboarder Eric Koston. “I was getting deep into skateboarding in high school, but having the Showtime Lakers as my home team was so exciting to watch. They were at the peak of their championship wins, they had their rivalry with the Celtics – it was compelling, competitive, flashy basketball.”

The collection’s two pieces of apparel — the Nike SB x NBA Satin Bomber and the Nike SB x NBA Hoodie — are adorned with an oversized Association logo, an iconic symbol of style, individuality and fandom. 

Classic basketball silhouettes compose the footwear assortment, including the Nike Bruin, Blazer and Dunk. In the shoes’ earliest forms, key features like padded ankle collars and flat soles were a natural fit for skateboarders who needed protection and tight boardfeel while riding.

“As a skateboarder, I’ve always looked at those early basketball shoes from an aesthetic standpoint — because the style was always cool — but also from a technological standpoint, because of the similarities in our need for impact and support,” says Koston. 

The Nike SB x NBA Collection releases October 13 on nike.com and at select retailers. The pink Nike SB x NBA Bruin and pink Nike SB x NBA Hoodie release December 1 on nike.com and at select retailers.
