Nike NSW Lifestyle Collection

September 24, 2013 3:06:17 PM PDT

The Nike NSW Lifestyle Collection features casual, simple and stylish off-court models inspired by the on-court signature styles of Nike's three biggest NBA athletes: Kobe Bryant, LeBron James, and Kevin Durant. The Nike Kobe 8 NSW Lifestyle has a straightforward low-cut design with Kobe's logo on the tongue, heel clip detail, and Kobe's signature. The Nike LeBron X NSW Lifestyle is a takedown version of LeBron's technical basketball sneaker. This sleek model has a mid-cut design with strategically placed laser cut vents, embossed lion logo, and "backward facing" Swoosh on the side panel. Although the Nike KD VI NSW Lifestyle is a complete departure from Durant's low-cut game model, they still have many of the same design elements, including, "lightning bolt" treatment on the heel and midsole, Swoosh placement at the forefoot, and prominent "kd" logos.

The iconic Nike Air Trainer 1 in its original "Chlorophyll" colorway is back. Initially released in 1987, the Air Trainer 1 is one of Tinker Hatifield's first sneaker designs. The story behind the first athletic cross-trainer ever created began when Hatfield was noticing people at his local gym carrying multiple shoes in their gym bag. He witnessed people do weight training in one pair shoes, then change shoes for cardio activities. So, Hatfield decided to create a sneaker that would excel in every facet of the workout regime. When Nike chose two-sport athlete Bo Jackson to endorse the Air Trainer 1 in commercials while participating in every sport under the sun, it was a perfect match. Famous tennis player John McEnroe even laced up the Air Trainer 1. Simply put, it's a coveted Nike classic that's a must for any sneakerhead.
