Could be a better study of contrast than this. Unlike previous Nike Skateboarding releases, where its footwear largely coordinate with the apparel collection. It looks to be that the design team decided to have apparel line more as a stand alone product line this time around. As expected, vibrant colors, including one taken from the cover of England’s Passport, adorned the Nike SB July 2011 footwear designs. The same cannot be said of the July 2011 Apparel and Accessories. The tone is a muted one, with mostly black and white, though it isn’t to say the designs are “boring”. Instead, the playful nature is still alive and well in the line-up, including one mimicking the famous emblem of Chanel No. 5 fragrance and 3D Nike SB Icon graphic. As to when the black and white colorways wouldn’t not match with the sneakers’, Nike SB supplemented with argyle socks and snap-back caps.
The Apparel & Accessories Releases from Nike SB for the month of July 2011 are now available through Nike SB retailers worldwide.
