The ladies at Nike were nice enough to send along some of their newest tops and of course, we took it as an excuse to put together a lil’ photoshoot at Kezar Stadium in San Francisco. The tops are perfect for summer – who doesn’t love half tops and muscle tanks? The inspiration for the tops came from vintage Nike pieces found at local thrift stores in Beaverton, Oregon. As the birthplace and current home of Nike, there’s a lot of that kind of stuff there (now you know where to find it!). The tank was inspired by old school muscle tanks with deep arm holes and dolphin hems. The half-top or “shimmel” is traditionally used under a football uniform but was a big hit in the 80’s so Nike kindly resurrected that for us as well.
The tops were made exclusively for Urban Outfitters and you can find the tank top here and the cropped-top here.
