Today Nike and the NYC Parks Department has unveiled a new limited-edition New York Parks collection, which drops on December 5th. The collection is inspired by and in celebration of NYC Parks. Fun Fact: Pelham Bay Park here in the Bronx is the largest park in NYC. This unique partnership came about with the city of New York to focus on creating experiences and produce products that align to important sport and community moments in the city.
Nike has a long history of working with New York and with community partners to provide access to sport for athletes in the five boroughs- and we’re really happy that they recently reached an agreement with the mom and pop businesses located around Yankee Stadium in regards to their latest licensing contract. The new partnership, the first of its kind for the brand in North America, extends Nike’s commitment to New York.
The AF1 – ALL FOR 1 – NYC is inspired by parks across the city and the associated 12-piece apparel collection includes; a cotton crew T-shirt featuring the NYC Parks logo on the left chest paired with a Nike swoosh brand on the right, NYC Parks sport icons centered on the back and signed off with a woven jock tag label.
The AF1 – ALL FOR 1 – NYC and NYC Parks apparel collection releases December 5 at Nike NYC, Nike Soho, Foot Locker Washington Heights, select local retailers and on nike.com. The AF1 will also release on SNKRS in North America.
