In means of paying homage to the hardwood, Nike Sportswear has just released a new basketball-inspired Nike Air collection. Paired alongside the iconic Air Force 1, the Swoosh presents an array of updated apparel with retro influence.

The first item is the Nike Air Pivot Hoodie, which is short-sleeved and meant to be layered. A quartet of stars brands the pair on the front, representing the four quarters of a basketball game.

Next up is the Air Pivot Crew. The sweatshirt points towards the un-tucked basketball jersey, in turn featuring a longer look and curved hem. The graphic on the front is inspired by the free throw line, while the stars are a representation of the five players that take the court for each team. To match the tops, Nike has also designed the Air Pivot Jogger. The athletic-style pants feature a slim and tapered fit.

Finally, the Swoosh delivers the Air Force 1 Pivot. The classic silhouette has been updated with contrasting midsole trim and star branding on the tongue and heel.

Nike's Spring 2016 Air Pivot collection is available now at select Nike shops as well as online.
