To celebrate the launch of the new England National Football team kit, Sport-locker.net can today reveal that Nike Sportswear (NSW) has created a premium lifestyle collection featuring customised versions of two iconic sportswear styles, the NSW Destroyer Jacket and the Nike Air Max 1!
And we are HUGE fans of them both…
The England NSW Destroyer Jacket, accompanied by a premium carry case, sees the classic 1950s varsity style modified in homage to the home of the beautiful game.
The special edition jacket transforms a modern Nike icon with rich English heritage design cues including sleeves and pocket trims crafted from the finest rainproof British Millerain waxed cotton.
In addition, the zip lining of the England NSW Destroyer features embroidery reading ‘1863’and ‘2013′, in acknowledgement of the historic 150th anniversary of the English Football Association.
The jacket is complete with subtle embroidery and embellishment, such as the original three Royal Lions crest in the lining and a crest silhouette patch on the chest both symbolising the armour of a nation.
A gold star above the chest patch signifies England’s 1966 triumph and directly mirrors the design of the new England National Football team performance jersey.
Finally, the jacket will be presented with four bespoke gold pin badges – a star, an England Crest, a patch crest and vintage football -that represent the past and present for an additional level of personalisation.
The special edition England Nike Air Max 1 iD is a NIKEiD customisation of one of the most famous footwear styles. Since 1987 the Air Max 1 silhouette has transcended its running origins to become a wardrobe staple for a variety of UK subcultures.
This understated black-on-black version of the Air Max 1, complete with a special edition box and certificate, features discreet details that reference the history and culture of football in England.
Linking to the NSW Destroyer Jacket, a gold star has been embroidered onto the back of the shoe while the eyelet features in bold red, in honour of the St. George’s Cross.
The England NSW Destroyer Jacket and England Nike Air Max 1 iD are available in limited quantities from the NSW Cube in Niketown London and Harrods from 28th May 2013. The England NSW Destroyer Jacket will set you back £270 whilst the England Nike Air Max 1 iD is £120!
