Nautica has teamed up with Footaction to exclusively release the official Nautica Competition capsule collection, a 90’s sportswear label influenced by competitive sailing with bold color blocking, big logos and reflective trims, known for fusing streetwear and activewear elements. Nautica will make its Footaction debut this spring with an assortment of apparel, footwear, and accessories.

Tapping into the brand’s design veteran, Steve McSween, the partners reveal an assortment of nostalgic high and low top sneakers, slides, graphic tees, color block sweat pants, knit shorts, nylon bomber jackets, and a clear waist pack. The capsule includes retro pieces influenced by Nautica’s traditional silhouettes and design aesthetic.

The assortment will also include boy’s apparel, footwear and bags produced in timeless silhouettes, matching back to the men’s collection to create the perfect “mini me” looks.
