Nike and Levi’s team up for skater-friendly jeans

511 Skateboarding jean features “high tech” denim and skinny fit, natch

Levi’s has collaborated with Nike on a new range of denim aimed at skateboarders. Dubbed 511 Skateboarding, the collection features two new pairs of 511 Skinny jeans, plus shoes and a Trucker jacket.

The denim comes with Nike’s Dri-FIT and Vectran technologies – the former wicks sweat away from your skin, the latter is a strong fibre that’s thinner than human hair – and goes on sale from 4th July. The jeans start at $98 (around £62).
