It was an intimate affair as we were led through the showcases of Nike’s statement-making pieces and learn more about the stories behind some of Nike’s classic sportswear.
In the Spring 2011 collection, the spirit of Athletics West (running club) continues in the Sportswear.
Don’t miss out the N98 track jacket, which was initially designed for the Brazil national team back in 1998. What makes it stand out is the stripe down the sleeves and tailored fit for a smart-casual look. It is double knitted for comfort and features a high-rise collar to protect the neck.
In Summer, Nike brought back the all-time classic – Cortez and Grand Slam Polo.
The Cortez is now given a twist by using Nike’s latest technology. The Cortez is lighter, weather-resistant, with a improved cushioning on a heel wedge design. The design is simple using nylon, while the toe panel is covered in classic suede.
The Cortez is known to be Nike’s first running shoe and was designed by Bill Bowerman (Nike’s co-founder) himself. The Cortez comes in both classic and modern colours, and the price range from S$79 to S$95.
Also, expect to see The Grand Slam Polo (GS Polo), which takes pride in creative embroidery made
up of Nike Swooshes.
The GS polo is made from high quality fabric with the flat-rib vented collar that allows your skin to breathe. So don’t worry, just sweat it out!
There is a whole range of colours and footwear as well for the ladies. Stay cool in the hot summer days.
This canvas slip features some bold colours and check out the polkadot details in the interior of the shoe!
The Athletics West series really paid tribute to its heritage, and at the same time not comprising to the quality and style. They serve the basic performance of an athlete, but re-engineered for a trendy look.
Or perhaps acquire some new tees? Nike’s tees are made from organic cotton, which tend to cause lesser skin irritations and give more comfort.
My favourite from the tees available is the one on him:
Sara of Icyabstract and I later moved on the shoe cabinet which was kickass!
More drool-worthy shoes from the cabinet:
My favourite shoe was this pair:
Such cute plane prints! I developed a certain for planes… so yeah. Heh. I think the bf will like this too.
Here’s Fay in her favourite white Burnout tee:

If you’re eyeing the pair of sandals that she’s wearing, here!
The gladiator sandals will be available from April onwards at the Nike outlet, also available in purple colour.
From the Liberty of London pack, there is also the floral design which I tried out, which was super comfortable.
The hospitality was great, and I really liked Naumi Hotel (it’s a boutique hotel).
So get set for the year of Rabbit with Nike Sportswear Summer and Spring Collection!
