As great as it might feel to wear your best linen shirt on a summer's evening, some occasions call for something decidedly more laid back. Sportswear, born out of a need for lightweight, breathable, and ultimately comfortable performance apparel, is a perfect match for such warm weather times, and it doesn't come much better than when served by Nike.
The world's biggest sportswear brand has been providing summer-ready garments for decades and continues to do so. A big range of new season products by the Swoosh just landed at Urban Outfitters, from casual tees and running shorts to everyday sneakers included. We've picked out some of our highlights below, as well as some pointers on how we'd style them.

Nike Bucket Hat
When it comes to summer headwear, you really can't beat the bucket. There's a reason that sportswear brand iterations like this one have been around since the '90s. A timeless cop that'll go with everything.
Nike Festival Tie-Dye Tee
Obnoxious prints get given a pass during summer, with white pants and simple sports shorts providing more opportunity to go loud elsewhere.
The Nike logo hoodie is a classic, enduring piece that is unlikely to offend anyone. However, this wild slime green colorway option might do so, and that's the beauty of it.
Nike Flex Stride Running Shorts
For grown men, wearing shorts can be a tricky thing to get right. We'd advise keeping things simple and frill-fee with a pair of runners, even when you're not running.
Nike Canyon Sandals
This season's sandal offering has been wild, with all kinds of labels, from the highest heights of luxury fashion to sportswear brands, dropping new ones. Nike's rugged hiker sandal will be at home on the city streets and the trail, and with pants or with shorts.
Nike Flex Trail Shorts
Sportswear is particularly fitting for summer because of its lightweight and function-led properties. These shorts are built from Nike Flex fabric, which will stretch with your body as you move. The inside liner will also help with sweat-wicking, too.
Nike Max 90 Festival T-Shirt
Once upon a time, before a global pandemic took place, Area 51 was pretty much all anyone was talking about. Since a long-forgotten topic, you can bring it back into discussion with this alien graphic tee.
Nike Basketball T-Shirt
Following the monumental success of The Last Dance and with the NBA returning, basketball's global popularity continues to go from strength to strength. I mean, even Nike is slapping basketball hoops on tees now.
Nike Sky Force Sneaker
The Nike Sky Force is an '80s basketball sneaker that has been retroed several times since then. The 3/4 edition comes in this ultra-crisp, all-white colorway just in time for peak summer.
Nike Air Pegasus 36 FlyEase Sneaker
Nike's Air Pegasus is a solid running silhouette that has remained in rotations, perhaps because of its downright comfort. The FlyEase edition adds even more ease of wear through its zipper, meaning you can slip them on and off at speed when on the beach or in the park.
