Nike is set to launch the Tech Pack, featuring the engineered, body-mapped fabric known as Tech Knit, combined with the brand's always popular Tech Fleece. Standout pieces from the range include the classic crew and hoodie, each featuring a Tech Fleece body built with a pliable, lightweight layer of plush foam, placed between soft cotton jersey that traps air to provide warmth, breathability, insulation and articulation. The first release from the pack launches today via the Nike Tech Book, followed by a September 1 release through nike.com/techpack and Nike Sportswear retailers. As part of the launch, Nike sat down with Kevin Durant and Kyrie Irving, both sporting the new Nike Tech Fleece Hoodie.
Release Date: 9/1/16 (Thursday) - In stores and online
“The chase for a championship means everything,” says Kevin Durant. “All of the individual rewards are great, but at the end of the day, basketball is a team sport, and the ultimate goal is to win a championship not just for yourself, but also for your city, your team, for your family.” Now do you understand why he is the most likeable player in the NBA? The Maryland-born forward, now racing for the ring with Golden State, makes it a point to stay humble, focused, and grounded, which has made him of one the most successful and idolized athletes of his generation.
“My motivation is achieving greatness,” says Irving. One championship down and a spot on this summer’s squad, the 24-year-old point guard is surely checking off the boxes to become a basketball legend. Surely, Irving’s come a long way from being the skinny West Orange, NJ kid who stood in the middle of the Meadowlands and proclaimed, “I will play here, I promise.”
