We’ve known since tax day that the Levi’s x Nike SB collaboration would launch on July 4th and since about four weeks after that, that one key component would be a pair of 511 jeans. The sneakers in play remain a mystery at this point (though there’s some speculation of at least one pair eschewing denim entirely in favor of a canvas build), but we see more details of the Nike SB x Levi’s 511 today with images that show a definite ‘Tiffany’ influence by way of select teal stitching and a black leather size patch. The Diamond Supply look is a sharp contrast against dark rinse denim but it’s a definite sign of Swoosh skateboarding’s involvement; which other colors of the ever-versatile 511 would look good with this kind of detailing? Let us know when you’re on the other side and check back with Sneaker News for updates on the Levi’s x Nike SB pack and how it’ll play out with the USA Olympic BMX team in London. via N-SB
True Religion hahah you for real?? That's just like wearing Affliction or Tap Out--Sweet True Religion's remind me of the Jersey Shore and Ross---they have turned into complete garbage
must be nice to just be able to throw a nike swoosh on a pair of jeans just to mark up the prices...this is a desperate cry for help from Levi...if anyone looks up Levis 10k reports from the following year, you'll see they didn't make any profit...so i'm guessing they called up Nike to help
I was hyped about this release. I still am somewhat about the sneaker possibility, but these jeans look like every other pair of 511s. Not complaining, just want to see the sneakers and/or packaging.
These are nice but there going to be super spendy and almost impossible to get! and they don't make them for fat guys like me anyway so I'm not even worried about it!!! I do want the SBs though!!!!
