Finally, five years after Nike’s action sports line, Nike 6.0, was launched in 2005, the line is taking the ladies who ride into consideration! To be hitting stores soon is the Nike 6.0 Women’s line-up which is designed to be a performance collection that is fashion driven.
For this collection, Nike consulted the Nike 6.0 team members, surfer Ellery Hollingsworth, Carissa Moore and Monyca Bryne-Wickey, and had their 6.0 ladies work closely with the designers on the collection. The line is designed to be taken from court to streets, and from day to night. It is casual enough to be thrown on without much effort, but can also be styled up if the athlete is heading out at night. Some of the pieces previewed from the upcoming line includes a vintage, 80’s-looking PYT Crew Sweatshirt done in a faded blue dye with a boat neck; the Luxe Layer Tank with a racer back and contrast blue chest pocket, and two new sneakers, the Nike Air Isis (low-top) and the Nike Balsa Mid which is previewed here in a muted grey with gum soles and a strap across the front.
The collection is set to launch in July alongside a documentary on the Nike 6.0 surf team which will possibly debut at the U.S. Open of Surfing in late July. via: WWD
