Launched this Fall, Nike continues to present impressive apparel in their new Nike Sportswear Pinnacle Collection. The core inspiration for the Winter 08 NSW line is athletic performance in any weather condition. With that directive, much of the outerwear has been reengineered to withstand dumping rain or snow, harsh winds and frigid air temperatures. Throughout the collection, innovations such as impermeable no-sew seams, breathable/waterproof fabrics, Storm-FIT fabrics, waterproof zippers, water-repellant softshell fabrics, no-sew storm flaps and laser-cut cuff adjustability keeps cold out and warmth in, never sacrificing cutting-edge style in the process.

The partnership between Nike Sportswear and Japanese fleece specialists Loopwheeler that starts in the Fall and continues in Winter, is weaved throughout the NSW collection. The most eye-popping addition is the predominance of Nike’s bright Comet Red, which works its way through much of the line, most noticeably on the all-weather M65 jacket and on Loopwheeler fleece and tees.

With the Winter series of NSW, we start the collection with the legendary icons Nike Sportswear calls out. The iconic pieces include the Eugene Track Jacket, the AW77, the Windrunner and the NSW tee.

The collection will be arriving at the Nike Sportswear flagship store on Mercer Street in NYC on October 24th.
