nike levis event recap 0 Nike x Levis® 511™ Collection Launch Event Los Angeles   Recap

The celebration for the Nike x Levi’s® 511™ Skateboarding collaboration continued last week with another exclusive launch party, this time in Los Angeles in partnership with The Berrics. Aside from Braydon Szafranski and Paul Rodriguez in attendance, Omar Salazar was of course also in the building, as he played an integral role in this rather unique collaborative project of the Collection. The skate pro attended the festivities and also demonstrated some of his skills, skating the park during the launch event. As if all of that wasn’t enough, the open bar by Pabst Blue Ribbon, burritos from Wahoo’s Fish Taco Truck and local band Trash Talk sealed the deal. The result was a massive line around the block all day, with kids eager to get in on the action.

If you were one of the unlucky ones that could not make it out, flip through our full picture recap of the event here below.
