Last night I attended a really unique fashion show –on a West Side Manhattan Rooftop! I was there to see the debut of the NIKE ACG “All Conditions Gear” collection of high-peformance outwear, exclusive to Dicks Sporting Goods stores. Guests lined both sides of the rooftop runway as Jeff Hennion, Senior Vice-President & Chief Marketing Officer of Dicks Sporting Goods, introduced the line.
The fashion show began with two young men climbing a genuine rock climbing wall, as the models, local students from the NYC area, modeled the line of high-performance outwear. All were athletes representing sports as diverse as figure skating to wrestling, skiing to soccer. Their various outfits proved the point that this new line of Nike ACG outwear will suit your needs, no matter what activity you’re into.
I really liked the Whites Jacket $250.00 on the first girl, which is also available in maroon/white and black/white. It would look great on the slopes, or on the Street in Park Slope, Brooklyn! The Brenton Point Fleece Jacket (2nd in line) makes a great layering piece and it is just $100.00. It’s the sort of jacket you can wear when the weather is merely a bit chilly, but layered, all the way into the heart of Winter.
The ACG line features everything from socks and gloves to pants, shirts and jackets. Outfit yourself from head to toe, literally, in items you can mix and match and layer to suit whatever conditions and activity you’re into. The styles are super-attractive in great color, appropriate for men and women of every age. Each product features bennies to keep you looking and performing your best, such as: Nike Dri-FIT (moisture wicking), Nike Therma FIT (warmth and insulation), or Nike Storm-FIT (full weather protection) and Nike Therma-Sphere (three dimension fabric for warmth and insulation). The prices for this high-tech, high-performance gear is reasonable, ranging from $10.00 to $250.00.
