Early today we got a tip off from Omar Salazar himself that his signature sneaker the Nike SB Omar Salazar would be a part of the upcoming team up between Levis and Nike SB, but as it turns out that’s not the only set of sneakers to be included in the capsule. Dropping a month after Omar’s pair is a Nike SB Dunk Low sporting a similar look, with the typical Nike hit on the back tab of the right shoe replaced with the Levi’s logo. Click through with us for a video spot and the full look at the collection, which will of course include some denim goods in the form of to separate version of the 511 Skateboarding jeans in a variety of washes and colors and the Trucker Skateboarding Jacket. Also, let us know which release from the Summer set of the Levi’s x Nike SB project you’re looking forward to most.
Nike SB Omar Salazar LR $85
511 Skateboarding Team Edition Jeans 198
Nike SB Dunk Low Pro $98
511 Skateboarding Jeans $98
Trucker Skateboarding Jacket $100

It was very much ‘perfect timing’ when on May 11th (5/11), we got our first look at the Nike SB x Levi’s 511 jeans. Their July 4th release date had been revealed over a month prior and the project’s been teased since February, but until today, we still didn’t know which Swoosh skateboarding sneaker(s) would be involved in the project. Thinking back to 2010′s Bruce Springsteen-inspired ‘Born in the USA’ Independence Day drop, it’s easy to see how a classic like the Dunk or maybe Blazer or even Bruin might be called upon. Instead, we see the familiar Red Tab logo applied to the heel of a recently revamped design, the Levi’s x Nike SB Omar Salazar LR ready to come out of hiding in time for next week’s holiday drop. Click through to get a better look at the Levi’s Salazar LR, let us know how they compare to the Dinosaur Jr. Zoom edition and stick with Sneaker News for updates. via Omar Salazar

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

Hints of Nike Skateboarding collaboration with American fashion staple Levi’s began spilling out after Omar Salazar sent a cryptic close-up of the back-tab of a pair of jeans, and after reporting the official July 4th release date in mid-April, today we have a detailed look at the Nike SB x Levi’s 511 Jeans. These are crafted in classic Levi’s style in the 511 cut (which Levi’s already has a Skate sub-label for) in a rigid black wash colorway, sized 32 x 32. No confirmation or updates regarding a possible footwear tie-in to the Nike SB x Levi’s collaboration, but perhaps a small capsule of skate gear? Check out the detailed shots below and stay tuned to Sneaker News for more updates on this unique partnership, and if you want to cop these samples, these are up for sale right now from jojotanjaya on ISS.
