The Levi’s Skateboarding Collection launched in Autumn 2013. The concept is simple: the reimagining of a range of timeless Levi’s classics to be able to withstand the abuses and abrasions of modern day skateboarding. The collection includes Denim Pants, Non- Denim Pants, Shirts, Sweatshirts & Outerwear. Developed and tested by skaters, each item in the range has a deliberate design paired with superior manufacturing.
Examples of Levi’s functional design details specific to the skateboarding range include adding Cordura to the denim to give exceptional abrasion resistance and Lycra T400 for increased stretch whilst remaining abrasion resistant. The seams and crotch also receive extra stitches to decrease the risk of rips. Other functional details of the jeans include an internal waistband stash pocket and double layered back pockets to keep your bits and pieces safe.
There is no standard dress code for skateboarding, which is a totally autonomous and self-governing pastime. However, it’s a fair bet that almost any skateboarder the world over has worn a pair of Levis at one time or another. Known for their durability, high quality and attention to detail, Levi’s jeans have been producing their timeless American denim for over 140 years. The Levi’s Skateboarding Collection is the latest development in a long lineage of product specification and innovation.
The focus in this collection is on performance-enhancing details which aim to offer skateboarders the greatest level of functionality and comfort by ensuring mobility, breathability, and most importantly durability. The Levi’s Skateboarding Collection is intended to withstand the severe abrasion that the pastime invites.
