I was in Singapore the other day and attended the
NIKE Spring 2011 Launch at Naumi Hotel Suite.
It was an intimate, private event for a few selected bloggers to introduce their new Spring/Summer 2011 collection.
Introducing the classic Cortez shoe (prices range from $79 - $95) - Nike's first revolutionary running shoe designed by athlete and track & field coach, Bill Bowerman. It makes total sense that the best running shoes are designed by athletes themselves. You may find this shoe familiar if you've seen 'Forrest Gump'.
One of his memorable quotes: “
My momma always said you can tell a lot about a person by their shoes, where the go, where they’ve been. I’ve worn lots of shoes, I bet if I think about it real hard I can remember my first pair of shoes.”

Kickass shoe closet
I liked that the setup was in a hotel suite, it was definitely something different and added a more personal touch. The apparels were displayed in the wardrobe, bathroom, shoe closet, and even in a suitcase to make it look like it was someone's apartment.
Traveling in athletic style.
The Grand Slam Polo collection is cool because it's variation in color, design and cut (the fit is tapered to accentuate the lines of your body). Girls would totally get the shoes to match the polo because it's simple, feminine, easy-to-wear and absolutely comfortable.
My favorite pick from the women's collection is the Burnout Cooldown Tee.
It's a basic, oversized tee that can be worn to the gym or paired with denim jeans for a more casual look. You just can't go wrong with a plain white tee (it's also a little see-thru which makes it kinda sexy), I love it!
Some other favorites from the Spring/Summer 2011 collection. Awesome statement tees, striped terry playsuit, Nike Skysail Slip (in Black), Nike Gladiateur II (in Purple) and Nike Tenkay Slip (in Red).
